  2. July Update

    We know you all have been wondering about the progress of East End Market, so here is our monthly update! Thank you for your patience and encouragement as we develop East End Market. Because there has never been a project exactly like this before, there are surprises all along the way, and as Owner John Rife would say, “If it was easy, it would have been done before.”

    Not only is East End a learning experience for us, but we also hope that it will offer many educational experiences for you once we open. Our edible landscaping and market garden will be just one of the opportunities to explore and learn at East End. It will awaken you to the possibilities of growing food, says Henry Melendy, Founder of My Yard Farm and landscape designer of East End Market. And John Rife can’t wait to have a market garden, which “will be the billboard for what’s in season.” So, take a peak at what we have accomplished over the past couple of months and leave your comments below.


  3. March Update

    Audubon Park is home to some of Central Florida’s unique hangouts, including Stardust, Bikes, Beans & Bordeaux, Redlight Redlight, Blue Bird Bake Shop, Sushi Lola’s, Park Avenue CDs, and more!

Enjoy Orlando Live‘s March video update of East End Market’s development and please share your comments below!

  4. Olde Hearth Invites Community to Help Shape Business

    Founder/Owner Shannon Talty and Head Baker Janice Brahm

    If you taste their artisan baker’s treats, you easily recognize the care Orlando’s Olde Hearth Bread Company puts into their baking. They are famous for using the best ingredients (with no preservatives) and most talented bakers in town. In 1998, founders Shannon and David Talty responded to a local need for an artisan bakery by opening shop with one “Olde Hearth,” a Llopis circular stone oven imported from Spain. Now, they are responding to Central Florida’s need for a local food hub by joining eleven other local merchants at East End Market.

    As a wholesaler, it is hard to come by their goods unless you catch them at a weekly farmers market or eat out at some of their clients’ restaurants (like Luma, Ravenous Pig or Marriott World Center). Once at East End, you will be able to get fresh bread and interact with these awesome people on the daily! They will continue their production in Casselberry in their stone floor ovens, and have deliveries made to East End everyday.

    Although Olde Hearth will continue to work with some of Orlando’s best chefs and restaurants, they can’t wait to begin interacting directly with the end consumer – you! They are looking forward to meeting their consumers face-to-face, and receiving their input to help shape their production. Shannon Talty says, “We cannot wait to get creative! [East End] will give us a place to really have fun with seasonal ingredients, limited productions and special items.” You may even get some hands-on experience as Talty says he is “looking forward to utilizing the [incubator] kitchen in the future, possibly for educational or development purposes.”

    It’s hard to come by this type of consumer-producer interaction in most food stores, especially with producers of their extraordinary expertise and knowledge. We are proud to have Olde Hearth joining East End, and taking part in the rising movement for local business and artisan food!
