Located at the scenic Lake Eola Park, the Orlando Farmers Market is one of the largest in the area. While it is a traditional farmers market in many ways (featuring local produce, as well as seafood and meats), there are some key differences. The majority of area markets are on Saturdays, but the OFM is every Sunday, making it the perfect pre- or post-brunch outing. Each week, they feature a new musical performance located in the outdoor seating and picnic area. It would be easy to spend a couple hours there given the relaxing atmosphere and seemingly never ending rows of vendors, not to mention the incredible views of Lake Eola surrounding the market. Dogs are always welcome, and there is even a large field where you’ll find many running around. The lemonade stand serves up freshly squeezed lemonade along with kettle corn, and often has one of the longest lines. Multiple stands serve food perfectly portioned for lunch. On top of all the food and drinks, there are also several art and craft stands, as well as reiki, fortune telling, and more.
Look for: Naturally cured, homemade beef jerky from Holy Cow; refreshing and fun slushies from Big Crush; authentic Mexican street food from Tamale Co.; coconut water straight from the coconut at Natural Goodness; bottomless mimosas and craft brewed beer from Shipyard Brewing Co.; organic produce from Fleet Farming; coffee and cold brew from Piccolo Coffee Co.
Pro tip: In the fall months they have a pumpkin patch, which makes for a great photo opportunity as well as a fun activity for kids.
