I went to the Farmer’s Market today and found no produce – very sad indeed to see only 5 booths and not one of them vegetables. Felt bad for those few vendors there.
Thank you for your comment. Our producer vendor was there with a variety of items available. As a reminder, the farmer’s market will be closed the first two weeks in July. Please join us on July 16th at our new location on the corner of Dakin Avenue and Broadway where there will be produce available.
Just went to the new location on Dakin. Very disappointing…still no fruits and vegetables. There was one stand with peppers. You should call it the kissimmee flea market, not a farmers market. It was a waste of time and gas.
Unfortunately our major produce vendor (who usually has two tents) had an emergency at about 1 p.m. yesterday afternoon, which they would have to take care of immediately or it would make him unable to come future weeks with his crop. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you take the time to visit us another week.
Does the market have green peanuts for boiling?
Unfortunately our market does not have green peanuts, sorry about that!
Earl this is Brown Family Farm I’m thinking about becoming a vendor but if you need green peanuts you can order them through me Bradley Brown @ 772-971-8480
Went to market for the first time this week. Have to say that’s the lamest excuse for a Farmers Market I’ve ever been to. One produce vendor whose food probably came from the supermarket (Do we grow bananas in this are?). Some bread and sundries. About 6 or7 vendors, not worth the gas to get there.
Unfortunately, due to the rain earlier that afternoon, we did have several vendors that chose not to come to the market that evening. Also, all of our produce vendors have been working hard on their fall crops and we look forward to the addition of those items at the market in the coming month. We hope you come back by the market in October when the cooler weather will yield more produce for our farmers and in turn their customers.
funny, how there has been a major excuse for every negative comment left from a visitor to this market. I live near UCF and thought to make a trip there to check it out but glad I read some comments because I’d truly be upset if I were to drive all the way across town to check it out and there not be any fresh fruits, and veggies.
It’s unfortunate that you got a negative impression of our market due to the comments left of this page. We have D&R Produce who comes weekly to the market; you can see their comment on this page in October, along with a decrease in negative comments since fall crops have been harvested. We hope you reconsider us in the future.
Do you know if any of the produce is organic? If so,when is a good time(better chance) of finding it there? As I live pretty far out in SC,don’t want to drive down there and be a waste…tyvm,.God Bless
We do have a hydroponic produce vendor, Kissimmee Growers, but unfortunately no one is certified organic. If you are interested in trying Kissimmee Growers’ produce, they will be returning at the end of October when they are able to harvest their fall crop. Please let me know if you have anymore questions.
Don’t despair, Florida Fruit/Veggie Fans!- If you aren’t finding and abundance of the fresh local produce you’re looking for now- come back soon! Many of us come to Florida thinking that because it’s green here year-round, we can grow produce year-round. However, consumers need to understand that every crop has a growing season. The hot months are the most difficult time to grow in this region- heat and humidity prevent many crops from producing, insects/disease are rampant, fields often flood. That’s why you don’t see more Florida produce during the hot months. Fall crops have been planted, but many won’t be harvested until later this season. Keep your eyes open for green beans, squash, cucumbers and other early-season crops! ~Jessica Sullivan, your friendly local UF/IFAS Extension Educator http://osceola.ifas.ufl.edu/
Thanks Jessica! We all look forward to our fall fruits and veggies.
DRProduce is the current Produce vendor at the market, along with the Brown Family Farm. As stated above it is almost impossible to have ‘local’ produce in July, August, and September, but you can have ‘regional’ produce from our neighboring states that will still be fresh from the fields, literally just hours after harvesting. After Thanksgiving Florida will be producing the majority of ALL fresh produce for the entire nation, and you will be getting it first. Helpful information can be found on the Fresh From Florida website. You can also find us on Facebook at Orlando DRproduce. Thank you all for your business, see you Tuesday Nights 5 to 8.
How do obtain a license to be a vendor
The information on licensing for our Farmer’s Market is listed in the vendor packet. It can be found here: http://kissimmeemainstreet.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/kissimmee-valley-farmers-market-application-2013-1.pdf.
Is there a farmers market on Christmas eve?
There will not be a Farmer’s Market on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. The next scheduled market will be on January 7th.
We hope to see you there!
Does anyone at the market sell pure local honey. My husband has severe allergies and we are in need of pure local honey. If no one at the market sells please provide info of where I can get it that you may have.
We have 2 vendors that sell honey. The first is Majestic Treats & Eats and the second is R & B Honey. R & B is harvesting this month and will be back to the market in April.
Where do all the other farmers markets get their produce if it’s not local eg. Celebration? I’ve often wondered how they get produce year round, it can’t be local. I really want local grown produce.
Unfortunately we do not have access to that information, but you might have some luck seeking that information if you contact the other farmers markets directly.
What happened to Thursday’ mornings???
The Kissimmee Valley Farmers Market was moved from Thursday mornings to Tuesday evenings in October 2012. We hope to see you at the market next Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the corner of Broadway and Dakin Ave.
