Freshfield Farm Produce

Before I discovered Freshfields Farm, my budget for fresh produce consisted of bananas, green beans, potatoes, onions and the occasionally bag of spinach.  The chain supermarkets drained my budget quickly and a few years ago at the height of the recession canned and frozen food were replacing the fresh, nutrient rich foods I craved.  Then one day while I was running errands, I drove past a bright and inviting sign with produce specials listed on the marquee. I walked inside the produce market and it was like walking into a vegetarian Willy Wonka’s wonderland garden. The prices were affordable and the variety was immense. I came home so excited that day with three bags of fresh produce for around $20. I have been hooked on Freshfields Farm since.

This produce market is definitely a must-shop hidden gem of Orlando. It is located just south of Downtown Orlando in the newly claimed SoDo area. It hides a bit set back from East Michigan Street and Delaney Avenue behind a Walgreens.

They proudly offer a growing selection of USDA Certified Organic Produce and local grown picks, many Florida grown, which are displayed on a chalkboard hanging right above your head as you enter the ‘Fresh Produce’ side of Freshfields Farm. They offer seasonal and specialty produce items at unbeatable prices. The quality is better and the prices are considerably less than nearby grocery stores, such as Publix and Super Target.

The prices stay affordable because nearly all of the produce comes directly from the growers or straight from the packaging plant. They eliminate the middlemen, which adds days of shelf life to your produce, and keeps the prices low. Avoid the crowds and shop during the weekdays earlier in the day.
