I have a new love.
Freshfields Farm is a produce and meat market in the Delaney neighborhood of downtown Orlando. They sell fresh, local items at pretty great prices. They are not a grocery store, so you’d still need to go somewhere else to get non-perishables.
It’s actually two stores in one. One side is the produce side. Their produce comes straight from the farms, and their selection changes from week to week depending on what’s in season and available.
All of the produce always looks fresh and vibrant. To get to the meat side from the produce side, you actually have to cash out and exit so you’d end up with two transactions if you shop on both sides.
The meat side has a little bit of a smell, but the prices make it worth it.
All of the meat is packaged the day it’s received, and it contains no additives or preservatives. They also sell organic varieties.
Even though having to go to two different stores for our weekly groceries can be annoying, it’s been worth the cost savings. We’ve been saving anywhere from $10 to $30 off our weekly grocery bill.
Freshfields Farm also offers deli meats and has an ice cream shop out front. It’s very small so gets crowded easily. I try to go during the week to have some breathing room.
How many different places do you go to for your groceries?
