New Ormond Farmer's Market

Real Estate Agent with Adams, Cameron & Co. Realtors

Next Thursday, October 2nd, marks the first day of the Ormond Beach Farmer's Market, I'm told that Thursday is the traditional day of farmer's markets; I'm just glad to have one in Ormond Beach! For years Daytona Beach has offered a fantastic farmer's marketing on City Island on Saturday mornings. Flagler Beach has offered a great market on Fridays and a smaller solution on Saturdays. However, Ormond has been forced to head elsewhere.

No more! Ormond's Farmer's Market was established by Ormond Mainstreet, an organization dedicated to the furtherance of Ormond's downtown district. The new Farmer's Market is sanctioned by the City of Ormond Beach and should be a real asset to the community.

The Ormond Beach Farmer's Market will be headquartered at the Rockefeller Gardens. The location is at the corner of Granada (Ormond's mainstreet) and Riverside Drive, directly at the base of the Granada Bridge. The Rockefeller Gardens are so named because they were originally the garden area of the Casements (the winter and retirement home of John D. Rockefeller). The location is directly on the Intracoastal Waterway and has fantastic views. 

The location has ample parking at the Casements (across Riverside from the park), Fortunato Park (John Anderson and Granada), and surrounding areas. Ormond Beach is unique in the area in that all four corners of the bridge across the Intracoastal Waterway are dedicated parkland. 

Market hours are from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm. Visitors and locals alike are encouraged to visit the new Farmer's Market!

 I love Farmers markets!  Nothing like fresh produce!  A bit far for me to drive, hopefully it will get cooler here so ours will start up again.

This is cool. I didn't know about the new Ormond Farmer's Market. That's great news for people who have been driving to Daytona for their fruits and veggies =)

I thought the idea of a farmers market was that the public could buy directly from the farmers?  Case in point, Mick Copping of Jammin' Jellies.  We met him a couple of years ago at the Deland wednesday market and he told us he didn't have his own bees.  So we went a little further down the aisle to Josey's Honey.  They are real beekeepers. Not resalers.  We went out to their farm and got to watch them work with a few of their hives!  Now, we buy our honey from them at least once every other week.  If a market just has resalers doesn't that just make it an outdoor grocery store?

JAMMIN' JELLIES!  Our review of them was thumbs down all the way!  We heard the State recently shut them down twice in one week.  Are they still around?
