Orlando Farmers Market at Lake Eola Park is one of my favorite places to go on a beautiful Sunday. Stroll through vendor’s displays of fresh produce, flowers, plants and handmade goods. After an afternoon of shopping, relax under the shade in the beer and wine garden. The market is dog friendly, so bring along your pet for a walk around Lake Eola.

When: Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Central Boulevard and N. Eola Drive
Cost: Free entry
