East End Market Opens in Orlando
Orlando's quest for foodie nirvana has reached new heights, inspired by famous destinations like the "foodtropolis" shops of Chelsea Market in New York; the hallowed halls of Eastern Market in Washington, D.C.; and the daily celebration of land and sea at Pike Place Market in Seattle.
With the recent reopening of East End Market, Orlando now has its own gastro-hub, providing a venue to shop from local food artisans and unique merchants — just in time for fall and holiday menus.
Shoppers will take pleasure in discovering treasures from among the dozen or so merchants, all presented in a food hall atmosphere. Here's your guide to some of the market's most notable vendors.
