Day 5: Farmer’s Market

Day 5: Farmer’s Market

Aug 05

This phrase, like so many other American terms, has all but lost its original meaning: A locally-organized market where farmers can sell the fruits of their labor. Today's farmer's market is a far cry from the original — it's mostly just an arts and crafts fairs with some small food resale companies on the side. Tonight, however, we visited College Park's fairly young farmer's market and were pleased and surprised. It's one of only two local markets in Orlando, the other of which we have yet to visit, and it offered a lot of opportunities for us for the next three months.
