Spotlight on: Morris’s Market
|January 15, 2010||Posted by admin under FAPC, Farms|
The Daily City, a blog all about life in the Orlando area and local events, recently began a new project called “TheDailyCity.com Helps.” This project takes a local business that is not doing so well financially and tries to promote it. Their first feature is on Morris’s Market, a fresh produce shop in Lake Mary that is unfortunately struggling to stay afloat. After seeing what a great store this is, I just had to write something on here to share it with our readers!
This cute shop is basically a farmers market that is open all week. As TheDailyCity put it, “Forget waiting until Saturday or Sunday to buy your local peppers: they’ve got them every day.” While farmers markets are awesome, most of them are only open certain times of the week. With Morris’s Market, you can stop on your way home from work to get everything you need for dinner that night. Check out this video that TheDailyCity.com filmed of the inside of the store. It looks super cute and fresh!
Another perk of Morris’s Market: Around 80% of the fresh produce, grass-fed beef, eggs and bread are grown/made right there in Central Florida. In fact, the people that own the store have their own farm, where a lot of the food for the store comes from. How cool is that?
If you live in the area and have never visited Morris’s Market, tomorrow (January 16, 2010) would be the perfect time to stop by. They are hosting a chili cookoff/all you can eat chili day. It is $15 to enter the cookoff (top 3 win prizes) and $5 to stuff your face with chili. Plus you can pick up some fresh goods for a yummy Sunday lunch.
