    Yes. Very, very small. Not worth going out of your way for, but if you are right there, then by all means stop.

    The Winter Park Farmer's Market is much larger and "nicer" to a certain extent. I don't really like any of the Farmer's Markets here in Central Florida as they aren't "real." Very few of the booths offer produce or items grown or created by the booth owner.

    There is a little cheese booth (outside, not indoors) at Winter Park, where the women who are selling it actually make the cheese.

    Thanks Tink. We are going to be close by and are planning on making most of our meals while we're in town and wanted to get some fresh fruits and veggies along with some items there at Whole Foods.

    Go inside Whole Foods, first. The prices just may be less expensive than the Farmer's Market. As I recall, there is a hydroponic lettuce and tomato grower there.

    Whole Foods is pretty great. If you like cheese, prepare to be awed.

    If you happen to be in Celebration on a Sunday you will find a market set up in Market Street....naturally.
    Several of the stalls sell fruit, veg, cheeses etc.etc. along with other craft items.
    It`s worth a visit if you are in the area.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
