Farm Market Grand Reopening!
Our Farm Market will reopen for the Fall season this Saturday from 10-1pm!  

After a successful 6 month run last season, we have decided to offer our great products once again for your health and enjoyment.  The gates will open at 10am with numerous vendors offering their products and expertise.   Chef Antonio Albertsz  from Disney World will be on hand to cook up Guava pulled pork sandwiches and southwest Grilled chicken Salad roll. Samples of these will be available for $2  We’ll have 9 C Brand BBQ cooking up lunch specials with their homemade sauces. Be sure to stop by and get some of the tastiest outdoor cooking in the county.  We’ll have 20 min. discussions on “Preventative Medicine”, “How to shop a Farmer’s Market”, and “Buying Produce in Season”. 

Our goal for O-C Grown is to offer our own county grown, made, and baked  products for the extent of the season.  This fall we have some new vendors offering a variety of new commodities:  homemade pizza crusts, gluten free baked items, artisan organic breads fire baked in brick ovens, unique flavored jams, freshly ground white wheat flour, and green juices and smoothies.  In addition, we will be offering grass fed beef, free range chicken eggs, raw honey, raw dairy milk, kefir, raw goat milk, goat cheese and soaps, jams and jellies made with local fruits, perfectly blended herbal products for skin, cleaning, and natural wellness, granola bark, impeccably wrapped sweet and salty treats that would be a perfect gift choice.  We’ll always have our seasonal produce.  This week it will be a truckload of corn on the cob and corn stalks for Fall decorating.  In October we’ll be offering a bounty of veggies and citrus as they ripen.  Each week we will post on FB what produce will be available during the growing season.

You ask where the local food is….it is at 5700 E Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy, St Cloud, FL 34771 (across from the Serpentarium) each Saturday from 10-1pm.  It's our Farm Market....our farmers, our producers, our food.

“Jr. Farmers” and “Neighbor’s Table”

To encourage our little people, we're opening a JR. FARMER area at our Farm Market on Sept. 27th and throughout the season.  Kids, if you have ANY produce to sell, now you have a spot to do it! You can do all the money transactions and learn what it takes to grow and sell your produce. Vendor's fee is 50 cents. Start planting something in your backyard and come and sell it. You are our hope for future farmers!!

We’ll also have a Neighbor’s Table at our market each week for those of you that are gardeners with extra produce.  For a nominal $5 fee you can have a chance to share your knowledge of gardening and sell your extra vegetables, avocados, or fruits that you have growing in your backyards.   Table will be provided…you bring the produce!
