International Drive going local?

Is International Drive hopping on the "local" bandwagon?

1. Local Funky Monkey restaurant and wine bar is opening its second location in the Pointe Orlando shopping center on International Drive, which will be the VERY FIRST locally-owned business at the shopping center.

2. Festival Bay Farmers Market will begin with over 35 vendors and will build rapidly to between 75 and 100. At least one third of these product and service vendors will be agricultural. The market will carry Florida Grown vegetables and other merch.
