Every weekend, we see farmers markets pop up throughout Seminole County. The newest and most unique farmers market that’s making a statement in Seminole County is The Good Neighbors Farmers Market in Oviedo.

 

The Good Neighbors Farmers Market’s a little off the grid as far as a farmers market’s concerned since it’s not directly on a street. Instead, this is a privately owned farmers market that’s located on 35 acres of property that not only has vendors selling fresh veggies, fruits, honey, foods, handmade goods, and anything agricultural. This farmers market also tells a story.

 

It portrays something that of an outdoor museum, where you can see and learn about the tools and machinery that farmers used to work the land, prior to modern technology.

 

Once you’ve taken a gander at all the tools and machinery that farmers used to use, head over to the petting farm to entertain the kids. Not only can you feed and pet the donkeys, goats, chickens, and other farm animals, but you can also learn how all these animal were essential to farm life before modern machine technology was available.

 

You’ve probably heard that you shouldn’t shop on an empty stomach because you’ll over buy. Before heading over to get all your produce and goods for the week from the local vendors, be sure to fill your belly with some food from the half dozen food trucks on site. There’s an assortment of food truck styles from Philly Cheese Steaks to those specializing in dishes with the base ingredient being hummus.

 

Every vendor you see at The Good Neighbors Farmers Market is local, meaning that they’re within 50 miles from the farmers market. When you buy your produce and anything else from The Good Neighbors Farmers Market, you’re truly getting a taste of Florida’s best.

 

Since The Good Neighbors Farmers Market is privately owned and doesn’t get any public funding, you do have to pay $2 to get in. When you go, you’re getting more of an experience than any other farmers market around town. Even though most vendors accept credit/debit cards, it’s easiest to just bring cash and for your convenience, an ATM is on site.

 

Next time you’re looking to get some local produce, bring the family for a fun day of learning and shopping at The Good Neighbors Farmers Market.

 

You can go and enjoy everything The Good Neighbors Farmers Market has to offer every Saturday from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm at1101 Lloyds Lane in Oviedo, FL. Don’t forget to “Like” The Good Neighbors Farmers Market’s Facebook Page to get all the latest updates.
