A spectacular shopping and tourist attraction, The Florida Mall® with over with over 1.8 million square feet and more than 250 retailers, is the largest shopping mall in Central Florida.

You’ll find some of your favorite stores and brands alongside exclusive shops that can only be found in the Orlando area. The anchor stores at the Florida Mall are Sears, Macy’s, Dillard’s and Dicks Sporting Goods.

Orlando Outlets https://aboutorlando.com/orlando-outlets/ Fri, 06 Nov 2015 16:33:10 +0000 https://aboutorlando.com/?p=4129 Orlando shopping discounts and deals at two Orlando Premium Outlet Malls, International Drive and Vineland Ave. What are the best deals at Orlando outlets?

The post Orlando Outlets appeared first on About Orlando.

]]>
Central Florida has two Orlando Premium Outlet malls for discounted shopping of your favorite brands.  See More Orlando Shopping at AboutOrlando.com
Orlando International Premium Outlets
4951 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
407-352-9600

Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets
8200 Vineland Avenue, Orlando, FL 32821
407-238-7787

Shoppers can find name brand bargains year round at these two popular Orlando outlets.  Both malls are fairly convenient to the Orlando area attractions and  just off of I-4.
For some Orlando visitors it seems as if a day spent shopping the outlets is just as important as the theme parks. Any time of the year, there will be travelers from all over the world searching for favorite designer brands to bring back home.
Sections of both outdoor malls do provide some shelter from the rain, therefore making them a popular alternative to a theme park on a rainy day.
Visit the website for Orlando International Premium Outlets or Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets to print or download the mall map.  This is the best time-saving strategy to plan your shopping adventure and find the brands that you are looking for.
FOOD AND DRINK:
Both malls have an indoor food court with plenty of options for fast-food dining. You can also find lots of drink machines located at the outlets with soda and water – but be forewarned these will generally run you around $2 each. When I shop at the Orlando International Premium Outlets, I generally bypass the food court for a nice sit-down lunch or dinner at Vinito Ristorante.
EXTRA WAYS TO SAVE:
At the customer service desk, you can purchase a VIP Coupon Book for $5. Usually the savings at one store will justify the cost book. If you have a AAA membership you can get a free coupon book at both Orlando Premium Outlets – and that’s a deal you can’t beat!Check for the best deals before even leaving the house by signing up on-line for the VIP Club. Along with receiving email notifications of store specials you’ll also have access to online coupons. When you sign up, you will also receive a voucher for a free VIP Coupon Book.

BUYER BEWARE:

It helps to know your prices! Don’t just assume that because you are in an outlet that you are getting an outstanding deal. I found a lingerie item at a local Walmart that was 60% less than the outlet price. The deal was even better on the stores website.

If you have any doubts about a purchase, be sure to ask about the return policy. Often times you will not be able to return the item at your local mall, since outlet shops carry different merchandise and run different specials.

TIPS FOR PARKING:

Parking is a nightmare at both outlets. The Vineland location does have a parking garage which helps a little, but you may still find yourself circling the lot for a while. My best advice, go during non-holiday times and avoid the weekend. Earlier in the day is also better than the afternoon. If you are staying at a local hotel, check first for shuttle service to the outlets. The I-Ride Trolly also stops at both outlets, though your purchases will be limited to what you can carry.

The post Winter Garden Farmers Market appeared first on About Orlando.

This is the perfect start to a fun day in Winter Garden – a great place to eat, shop and play. The City of Winter Garden is already so picture-postcard perfect that the addition of this market simply completes the hometown feel. This quaint West Orange destination offers a pretty diverse market with much more than just produce and plants. You’ll find booths with custom jewelry to handcrafted glassware – a mini arts and crafts market each and every Saturday.
Visit the large open air pavilion for a great selection of produce. If you don’t see what you are looking for there, check out some of the smaller independent vendors scattered around the market. Some of the vendors will only take cash, but others is an ATM on hand if you come up a little short.
As one of the larger Central Florida weekend markets, you’ll find everything you would expect along with a variety of the Saturday event brings vendors selling the standard Farmer’s Market fare along with a variety of interesting local artisans.
Even if you are not there to shop, there is still lots to do at the market. Enjoy the live music or a casual lunch, there are plenty of spots to sit back and ease into the day. Much of the market is shaded by massive moss laden oaks which offer a nice reprieve from the noon day sun.
Even the kids will enjoy this morning outing. There is plenty of space to run and play, and on a warm day the city splash pad will be filled with little ones giggling and running through the jumping water sprays. The market is also pet friendly.
Good to Know:
There is a city parking lot on Tremaine Street and lots of on-street parking along Plant Street. More on the Winter Garden Farmers Market.

Themed Orlando Shopping at it’s best!

Here in the tourist capital of the world it’s all about the themed attractions. So, there’s no reason we shouldn’t have some themed shopping to go along with that. Head over to the north end of International Drive, Orlando’s most popular shopping destination, and you’ll find the awesome Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. If you’ve never been to to one of these huge stores, you’re in for a real treat.  You don’t even have to be an outdoors-person to appreciate the experience. The outdoor theme is incorporated into just about every detail of the of the store’s décor – to the extent of what you would find at a Disney attraction.
The focal point of Bass Pro Shops is the is a huge 17,000 gallon aquarium that is located in the center of the store. The tank, stocked with an impressive selection of native Florida game fish, is embedded in a collage of faux rocks, giving the illusion of an outdoor pond.   Above the tank is a nature scene that includes several preserved wild animals posed around the man-made stream that flows into the tank below. Kids (and adults) love view the trophy fish swimming by. Come in during the fish feeding times, every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 pm for a real treat that’s both entertaining and educational. (Call to confirm dates and times.)
For a few bucks, you can try your luck at the indoor shooting arcade. The rustic setting has a Florida swamp vibe complete with an open mouthed Florida gator. Hit one of the marked targets to set something in motion; a light turns on, a sign falls. For a quick snack, head over to Uncle Buck’s Cabin, a mini cafe located near the center of the store with fresh baked treats.
As far as supplies and gear for hunting, fishing, camping and all things outdoors, the selection here is second to none. With everything from inexpensive fishing tackle to pricey boats all under one roof, it’s no wonder Bass Pro Shops is listed as the No. 1 “Outdoor Retailer in America,” by Sporting Goods Business magazine.
The large selection of outdoor attire for men, women and children includes some of the most popular brands including Columbia, Guy Harvey and Salt Life. Also impressive is the shoe and footwear department. Be sure to check the house brand, RedHead, for great prices with quality that is comparable to the much pricier name brands. For the camouflage enthusiast, this store pretty much has the market covered.  Along with everything you would need for your next hunting trip, you’ll find plenty of non-hunting items with the camouflage print such as baby clothes, designer purses and even sexy nighties.
For the indoors, Bass Pro Shops has quite the selection of educational items for children, unusual gift for the outdoor lover, and a full department of household items with a nature theme.
For a free outing (not counting what you might spend on the shopping), Bass Pro Shops should be put on the list of places to see in Orlando. SEE more Free Things to Do in Orlando.

Whole Foods Market, Orlando Locations https://aboutorlando.com/whole-foods-market-orlando-locations/ Tue, 17 Feb 2015 19:39:08 +0000 https://aboutorlando.com/?p=2940 Known for healthy, organic and gluten free products, the Orlando area currently has three Whole Foods Markets. Find the closest location to the Orlando attractions.

Whole Foods Market Orlando Locations, selling local products, organic and gluten free items.
In the Orlando area, you’ll find four Whole Foods Markets. The first Central Florida location of Whole Foods opened in 1998 on Aloma Avenue in Winter Park. It has been a long-time favorite for those shopping for healthy products and organic items. Since that time, three other locations have opened up in Orange and Seminole Counties. The Whole Foods Market on the corner of Sand Lake and Turkey Lake Road has provided easy access from International Drive and I-4 making this location a popular shopping destination for Orlando visitors and nearby residents.
The Shopping Experience
Departments include Bakery, Beer, Cheese, Coffee & Tea, Floral, Grocery, Meat & Poultry, Prepared Foods, Produce, Seafood, Wine, Whole Body.
Whole Foods is one of the largest retailers of natural and organic foods so don’t expect to find all of your usual grocery store items. The emphasis here is on healthy options. Check out their website and you’ll find a list of products that Whole Foods considers unacceptable ingredients for food and are therefore not carried in their stores. You’ll be paying a little bit more, but what you get may be worth it. Each Whole Foods Market offers locally grown or locally prepared products. Coffee lovers will appreciate the wide choice of quality options, including fair trade and organic varieties. The aromatherapy department of the store is hard to miss. The natural, clean scents entice you to check out the Whole Body isles.
Dine In or Take Out
You’ll be impressed with the large and appealing selection that is available in the Prepared Foods department of the store. I suggest that if you are hungry you head directly to the isles of freshly prepared soups, salads, pastas, meats and so much more. Package up as much as you like of whatever you are in the mood for and take it to the nearest register to check out. If you are not there for just quick take-out, you can enjoy your meal in the comfortable dining area near the front of the store . Be warned: You may be tempted to take more than you can eat – and keep in mind that for many items, you will be paying by the weight.
Amazing Desserts
Oh the breads, cakes, cookies and cupcakes! With so many options you’ll be tempted to try a few. The online recipes for some of these delicacies might be worth a try, but the convenience and selection make ready-made hard to pass up. Have allergies? Check out their Gluten Free Bakehouse for a large selection of fresh items that will meet your health needs.
Wine and Beer
The best one-stop location for a great selection of well displayed wines from all over the world. Pair this with some make-it-yourself appetizers – including an olive bar where you can mix and match your favorites. Freshly sliced cheeses are packaged in a variety of sizes for individuals or larger groups. Perfect for visitors on vacation.
Even More
Whole Foods Markets are open from 8 am until 10 pm seven days a week. In need of a little relaxation? Take 5 Massage is open daily from 10 am until 9 pm at all Whole Foods locations offering 10, 15, and 25 minute chair massages. Whole Foods Markets gives back to the community with free classes for adults and children – some require advance registration, others where you can simply drop-in.
Is Whole Foods Overpriced?
Without a doubt, there are many items that are priced way higher than other grocery stores such as Walmart or Publix. Sure, this is a trendy shopping experience, but that is what is part of the draw here. If price is the main motivator for where you shop, this article form House Beautiful does a good job listing The Only Things Your should Ever Buy From Whole Foods.

What an exciting and unexpected surprise I had a few months ago when shopping for paint. It wasn’t the Sherwin-Williams store that made my day, but the fifteen minutes that I took to wander into Orange Tree Antiques Mall while waiting for my paint order to be filled.

If you are like me, you’ve probably driven by this location a hundred times. Nestled in-between a Sherwin-Williams Paints and a Moe’s Southwest Grill in the Oakley Center strip mall, this antique store does not even attempt to broadcast it’s presence. The signage may be simple and unpretentious, but just enter through the nondescript double doors and you’ll feel as if you have just opened a hidden treasure chest. So much to see, you won’t know where to start.
When you enter the shop, you’ll be greeted by the cheerful clerks stationed at the large check-out counter facing the front door. Be prepared to check any bags and large purses in the handy lockers located there. If you are not comfortable checking, it might be best to leave them in the car. This is a really nice feature, as it leaves you hands-free to check out the items while eliminating the fear of bumping into things while browsing the crowded isles.
Every day you can find new items as the 140 dealers are always rotating and rearranging their inventory to fill the 15,000 sq foot mini-mall. Yes, that’s 15,000 sq feet of unique, specialty shopping. From the outside, it looks like it might be just a little one room boutique shop.
So, you wandered through the entire shop looking for that one, special item that will complete your knick-knack collection and didn’t find it… All is not lost. Ask at the front desk and they can immediately text all 140 vendors to see if one of them might have it in their collection.
If the already reasonable prices aren’t enough for you, venture in during one of their seven annual store-wide, four day sales weekends. You can always find a flyer on the counter with the dates of the next event, or like their Facebook page for updates. Be ready for crowds as the events usually bring in 1200 – 1400 shoppers, dealers and browsers. Discounts are generally between 10-30%. Signs throughout the shop will list which discount applies to each area.
I’m now a regular at Orange Tree Antiques. It’s an inexpensive and fun place to go and reminisce. At every turn I’ll find something that I remember from my mom’s china cabinet or Aunt Betty’s kitchen – items that we may have taken for granted at the time but are now triggers for happy memories. Leave a reply below and tell us about some of the fun treasures that you came across at Orange Tree Antiques.
WHAT’S NEARBY:
  • Trader Joe’s
  • Hillstone’s
  • Carmel Cafe
  • Krispy Kreme Donuts
  • Marlow’s Tavern
DIRECTIONS:

From I-4, exit Fairbanks and head East. Turn right on S. Orlando Avenue (17-92) and Orange Tree Antiques Mall is located in the Oakley Center.
