1,591 people attended the test run of Indoor Farmers Market. It returns to Downtown Orlando with excellent grocery vendors, mimosas and coffee, dessert and lunch makers, and of course, air conditioned comfort! #notsweating
A farmers market is essential to city life. Sweating through one during an Orlando summer is not. So The Daily City tested out a new event idea June 9th in downtown Orlando called Indoor Farmers Market (Website).
1,591 people walked through the doors.
There was a line down the block around the corner. For a farmers market.
Because of the success of the test run and the feedback from the attendees, we announced July 1st that we'll be doing a second date Sunday July 28th 10am-2pm inside the 2-story venue Celine at 22 S. Magnolia Ave in downtown Orlando.

Guests will once again shop for beef, pork, bread, in-season produce and more from 100% local growers, sip mimosas and coffee, eat lunches and desserts from local food makers, discover new culinary brands and products, and do it all in crisp cool air conditioning.
"We're being very calculated in trying to curate and create a market that cares about food, where it comes from and who is selling it," says Indoor Farmers Market owner Mark Baratelli. "Yes we have mimosas and coffee and cakes, and we have a collection of excellent respectable and known grocery staple vendors. Some are restaurant and shop brands bringing their knowledge to a farmers market for the first time, some are the top farmers market vendors in the region, and some are new discoveries. All of them are excellent at what they do and I'm very grateful they're participating in the market."
NOTE: This event is popular and the venue has narrow aisles. For the safety and comfort of guests, please leave dogs and strollers at home. Also, once the building reaches capacity inside, guests will wait outside and be let in in groups. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
