Orlando’s East End Market, a hub for central Florida’s artisans, chefs and food entrepreneurs (as well as a feature in our current issue) will celebrate it’s two year anniversary from Fri., Oct. 30 thru Sun., Nov. 2, 2015 with a weekend of activities — all with a Mexican theme.  From a Midnight Market to a Family Fiesta, there will be something for everyone. So come on out and support your favorite chefs, farmers and artisan producers from central Florida — and congratulate East End Market on two years of success.

East End Market will kick-off the weekend’s festivities with a midnight market on Thursday evening. Since the weekend coincides with Día De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the market will feature a Mexican theme bringing you Mexican food, recipes, music and salsa dancing.  To get you fully into the spirit, guests are encouraged to dress in costume.

Enjoy a family fiesta at the market on Saturday afternoon, an event that is perfect for the entire family. Guests can prepare for their trick-or-treating adventures by participating in the face painting, making their own masks or flower crowns, and dancing to Mexican folk music.
