Every Saturday, rain or shine, hundreds of people come out to the Winter Park Farmers’ Market. With over 80 vendors, it’s easy to spend an hour or two walking around and exploring. This market is very much the typical farmers market with produce, plants and some local products. However, the variety of vendors and its Park Avenue-adjacent location set it apart. Because of this you can make a day of it, starting at the market and working your way over to the Avenue for shopping or a late lunch (that is, if you don’t find something to eat at the market). Dogs are welcome to walk around the market as well, which is a bonus. There is also a shaded area with tables and chairs to enjoy the many prepared foods on offer, with a perfect view of all the action. There is truly something for everyone, from the health conscious to those looking for a sweet treat and for everything in between. The market is definitely the most popular place to be on a Saturday in Winter Park.
Look for: Delicious, homemade cookies at Heartsong; some of the best brewed kombucha at Roots and Tops Kombucha Wagon; prepared food from food trucks outside and vendors inside the main building; freshly popped kettle corn from Mountain Kettle Korn; local, organic produce from Frog Song Organics and Sugar Top Farms; organic, cold-pressed juice from Wheatberry.
Pro tip: Make sure to arrive as early as possible, because many vendors sell out before closing time.
200 W New England Ave.; Saturdays from 7 a.m.-1 p.m.
