This weekend, I recommend doing a farmers market crawl. Go to every farmers market in the immediate Central Florida area and compare them to each other. Here are a few to start with.

Friday nights, Deland has an evening farmers market 6 to 9 at Artisan Alley.

Saturday mornings, there are several markets.

Lake Mary hosts their farmers market at City Hall on Saturdays 9 to 1:30.

Sanford hosts their farmers market in downtown Sanford at East First Street and Magnolia Avenue Saturdays 9 to 2.

Winter Garden hosts their farmers market at 300 West Plant Street Saturdays 9 to 2.

Winter Park hosts their farmers market at 200 West New England Avenue Saturdays 7 to 1.

Sunday mornings, farmers markets are also hopping.

Orlando hosts their farmers market in downtown at Lake Eola Park Sundays 10 to 4.

Maitland does their farmers market at Lake Lily Park Sundays 9 to 2.

Mount Dora does their farmers market at Elizabeth Evans Park Sundays 9 to 2 as well.

So there you go. A weekend full of farmers market fun. Find your favorite and make it a weekend must-visit!

And as always, Orlando is wonderful.
