Family Adventures

Exploring East End Market

Is it just me or do weekends truly past by so quickly?! The Florida Morehouse family ended up spending the weekend catching up on work and house chores. PLUS I was preparing for my mom’s visit with us (coming all the way from Wisconsin and staying for a week! YIPEE!)

This past Sunday little Johnny and myself decided to get out of the house and explore a Market about 3 miles away from downtown Orlando. Big John had to finish up some business stuff, so he wasn’t able to join us. I discovered this Market about a year ago and I’m so enchanted by everything it offers. It’s such a relaxing and fun atmosphere (perfect for a Sunday Funday outing)!  East End Market is a place that indulges in Central Florida’s local farmers and food artisans. This is a perfect place to bring out of town guest. It’s such an enjoyable local area to explore that’s also a family friendly environment. It’s definitely a  therapeutic place that fosters creativity and inspiration.

This post will be short and sweet because I’m getting ready for my guests, but I wanted to share with you another “hidden gem” within Orlando. I haven’t been there in a while, and since then they have updated and added so many things. Next to the market is Domu, which is a ramen restaurant & bar.

Make sure to check out their website and facebook page for upcoming performances and events. Here’s just a few things that East End Market offers for the public:

Saturday Serenade (live music on most Saturdays) 

DIY workshops 

DIY Group Tasting (self guided culinary exploration)

Porch Therapy (so many beautiful succulents and terrariums) 

Shops 

Lineage Coffee (specifically cold brew)

Venue Rental

Little Johnny and I decided to eat at ^”La Femme Du Fromage”^ We ordered The Dirty Elvis (cheese that tastes like peanut butter with bacon and bananas on Olde Hearth BreadSeriously, it was the most decadent grilled cheese I have ever had! For all the cheese lovers this is a place for you! (It’s not a pretty food picture, but just take my word that it was good!)

Delicious cookies! OH MY! I’ve never seen such yummy cookies. A lady in front me called it “the two day eating cookie”. c4b83887-4426-461f-a458-8bbce465b200

PORCH THERAPY (excuse the bad picture because I was holding little Johnny and he was quite the wiggler.) They offer beautiful plants along with succulens and terrariums. ba6da508-703c-4dff-90b5-a01ca456a2fa

I’ll have the “whole milk” please! =) I’m in love with these red bar stools.

I ended up buying a 2 inch succulent for $2. It fits perfectly in a baby food jar that I have been saving!

Do you have a local artisan market?  Have you ever been to East End Market?

If not, you should definitely visit one day.
