No longer a best-kept secret, the Orlando Farmer's Market at Lake Eola is a bustling party every Sunday from 10am – 4pm. Located at the southeast corner of Lake Eola Park, the market now hosts nearly 50 vendors offering everything from gourmet cheese and kettle corn to one-of-a-kind art and handmade jewelry.
It's also a great place to pick up your provisions for the week thanks to the piles of fresh produce for sale.
