ORLANDO AREA - Can't-miss markets, bakeries, butchers, etc.?

Our extended family will be in Lake Buena Vista in early February for a week, and would like to do some fun cooking on-site at the villa.

Any suggestions for highly recommended markets, bakeries, seafood markets, butchers, or other specialty food shops would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. Petty's Meat Market in Longwood (off I-4/S-434). Great selections of seafood/meats, etc, KD

    1. Definitely make a road trip to East End Mark in Orlando's Audubon Park Garden District. It's filled with food--a good bakery, a cheesemonger, a fish shop, a juice bar, a barbecue sauce guy and more.

        Looks good! Any idea whether Fatto in Casa sells fresh pasta? If not, any other suggestions for getting fresh pasta in the area?

          I don't recall seeing fresh pasta there. And, alas, fresh pasta is far from abundant in Orlando. I suggest you seek out a dried brand imported from Italy. I don't know of one specialist here.
