Saturday, June 4th
Life has gotten so busy lately, how about slowing it down a bit and coming back to the roots of Oviedo? The Oviedo Historical Society founded the Oviedo Farmers Market so that the residents of the community could not only get the best, freshest produce, but to preserve the rich history that this community has. On the first Saturday of the month, the Oviedo Farmers Market is held on the grounds of the historic Lawton House, located at 200 West Broadway, in Downtown Oviedo.
The Historical Society boasts of their treasured Lawton House, built back in 1890. It originally stood where the current Memorial Building is on Central Avenue, but was moved to its current location in 1910. The stately yellow building with its tin roof, has hosted many community events over the years in Downtown Oviedo and continues to do so. The Farmers Market is run completely by community volunteers, which love to share their collective memories of Oviedo. All of the proceeds from their Farmers Market assure the continued operation of the historic Lawton House Museum, local area scholarships and the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting.
The Oviedo Farmers Market is all ready for you at 8:00 a.m. and is open until 1:00 p.m., in which you will find a wide assortment of locally-grown produce. To include everything from tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, berries and of course what put Oviedo on the map, celery. Other vendors will be presenting their organic honey, grass-fed beef, hand-crafted soaps and essential oils to all natural beef jerky and gluten-free or vegan options of a variety of delicious treats. You’ll find beautiful, blooming orchids and a selection of other succulent plants along a nutritious array of dried fruits.
So come on out to the Oviedo Farmers Market, this Saturday, June 4th and enjoy the wonderful feeling of buying local and organic along with being “green!”
