Alright so Orlando is well known for its outlet shopping – some of the best can be found at Orlando Premium Outlets – Vineland – but did you know the City Beautiful has an extensive number of unique local venues ideal for your retail (and not-so-retail) therapy pursuits? Take East End Market, for example. This indoor venue is a foodie’s fantasy come true, featuring local produce and small local businesses to tempt your palate with everything from house-made kombucha to world-class cheeses. There’s even an on-site beer-and-wine bar. Come Sunday, Lake Eola erupts in a riot of colorful produce at the Orlando Farmer’s Market. Here you can shop or just come for a brunch of sorts – arepas or street tacos or a burger perhaps, chased with mimosas and live music. Those more interested in a standard experience will find all the mall staples and more at Florida Mall, where the all-new Crayola Experience is a bonus for parents looking for something colorful for the kiddies. For more upscale retail, the Mall at Millenia will fit the bill nicely. Winter Park’s Park Avenue offers up myriad shopping – both brand-name and local – its galleries and bistros are world-class and few districts are as charming, historic and easy on the eyes. You’ll want to make a whole day of it.
