Down The Street From Mickey: The Artisan Food Hub

October 29, 2013 | By | Comments (0)

We’ve been following the construction East End Market for months now and are thrilled to get a sneak peek of this neighborhood market and food hub. Our prediction: It will play a major role in the development of the Orlando and Central Florida food community.

East End celebrated a grand opening last weekend, and will open to the public this Saturday, November 2, after they put the finishing touches on the place.

Included in the Audubon Park Complex: More than a dozen year-round independent merchants (like Italian bakery Fatto in Casa, cheese shop La Femme du Fromage, and Skyebird Juice Bar). It also features an incubator kitchen for entrepreneurs, working market garden, space for cooking and gardening classes, and Txokos, a Basque restaurant.

Launched by real estate developer and urban farmer (yes, you can be both) John Rife, the 14,000-square foot building (in a former Baptist Church) is a must-visit. Mickey won’t mind if you make a detour.  Located at 3201 Corrine Drive, Orlando.
