Reisberg realized his dream with two-story dedication space located within Orlando’s historic Audubon Park Garden District for this culinary movement.

Many vendors in the market are small independent business owners specializing in food and drink. Freehand Goods stands out for its non-typical grilled cheese offerings; every Friday they host a happy hour where guests can pair these non-typical cheeses with cocktails, beer, or non-alcoholic beverages to create the ultimate combo experience!

Comparable to Orlando’s larger restaurants, which may only offer limited menu items and seating space, most vendors at the market are small enough for you to order multiple dishes at one time to create a light meal. If you’re craving something sweet try Gideon’s Bakehouse; their gothic themed bakery is well known for their half-pound cookies!
