The Winter Park Farmer's Market is a great venue. The venue provides a small kitchen, round and rectangular tables and chairs. The only reason why I didn't give a full 5 stars for flexibility is the fact that you have to book months in advance. I booked the venue less than 15 months before my wedding and only had a few dates to choose from. Plus, the venue won't be open until 4 pm the day of for set-up purposes. Other than those negatives, the venue was beautiful and provided more than enough space for my wedding ceremony and reception.

We could not have been happier having our wedding reception at the Farmer's Market. It is such a gorgeous venue - not much need for any decorations, it is beautiful all on its own! It was more than enough room for my 100 guests and even had a large dance floor. Everyone of my guests commented on how gorgeous the venue was! I highly recommend using this for a reception or ceremony. We did a sparkler exit, but was told that evening it was not allowed by one of the winter park employees - we were told previously it was not a problem. So if you do plan to do sparklers be sure to check on it beforehand. We still did the exit and haven't had any issues though!

We absolutely loved having our reception at the Farmer's Market. The venue was fantastic for our shabby-chic/vintage wedding. It's on the smaller side - we had 12 tables and had to break down 2 of them when the dancing started. It's also booked so far out, so if this is your dream location, make sure you reserve it way ahead of time.

TIP- If you're getting married on a Friday, the original contract starts at 4pm. I was able to purchase 2 extra hours so my vendors could get on site at 2pm to have everything set up for my 5pm cocktail hour.

Great venue - unique and rustic. It fit our 100 guests perfectly. One problem is that they are very strict about decor... No burlap being one of their nonnegotiables, followed by strict candle rules. It's also tough to get in here to set up for a Saturday wedding, since the farmers market isn't over until 1 or 2, so by the time those vendors get out your wedding vendors can't get in until at least 4pm. This did cause our 6pm reception to start late.

Hard to get in here, they are booked about 14-18 months out!

The Winter Park Farmers Market was a perfect venue for our wedding. It fit our taste and was just the right size for 90 people. They have some strict rules regarding décor on the patio, which posed a challenge. Also, the venue person left for a brief time during the reception. He locked the door to the office, where the controls for the lights were, which delayed the start of the dancing. But, all in all, the farmers market was a great venue for the price.

This venue is very cute and relatively inexpensive as far as a ceremony/reception space that includes tables and chairs go. It lends itself quite well to a rustic/vintage aesthetic wedding and is surrounded by beautiful gardens perfect for outdoor photo-ops. Its policies, however, leave something to be desired. Its owned by the City of Winter Park, and they adhere closely to city laws and regulations. That's all well and good, but some of these rules were not stated in the original contract I had signed and I was, therefore, not prepared for them. One month before the wedding, I asked for a balance so I could pay them off, and I got the identical paperwork I had received a year earlier, only this time it had a big red stamp on it saying, "NO BURLAP!" I had planned on using burlap in a lot of my decor and had purchased it already. When I called about it, they just said that it was a Fire Marshal rule and I had to either get fire treated burlap or have mine treated to their standards. As I had already purchased the burlap, the fire marshal said I had to get it treated by a certified 3rd party (Stanley Steamer) to the tune of $200. I went ahead and did all of this and confirmed with the fire marshal that all I needed to bring with me was the letter that verified I had had it all treated to the venue. When my planner arrived with the burlap, the venue manager decided, after seeing my letter of verification, that he wanted to play fire inspector for the day and took it upon himself to cut a piece of my burlap off, light it on fire, and when it burned, he tried to tell my planner that we could not bring it into the building. Thankfully she didn't take that as an answer and set him straight on the science of fire retardant fabrics and city laws. This was just one inconvenience of this venue. Some other well known ones are that you can not get into the building until 4pm to set up (no early set up allowed the morning of, or day before) and you must be completely out 12pm.

I recently had my reception at the Winter Park Farmer's Market. The venue is lovely and I believe the best value in the area for its size. My biggest selling point was the flexibility of the venue for outside vendors. While able to accommodate the vendors, the Farmer's Market proved less flexible with our set up. The venue would not allow us to come in any earlier than the start time of our reservation at 4:00 to set up, despite an early sunset. While the details fell into place, it proved more stressful than anticiptaed to coordinate our day.

Loved this venue! It was perfect for a wedding reception. The staff always responded to my emails quickly and answered questions. They also accommodated all the date changes I made while trying to decide on a day! The lights inside add a sweet ambiance. I just had my reception here. The ceremony was held at a church. Make sure you check with the venue regarding decorations. They have guidelines regarding candles.

The Winter Park Farmer's Market was one of the first places we visited and considered for our reception. We had been to a wedding reception there before and loved the atmosphere. We really loved every aspect of the venue and the following are the highlights:
1. It reflected our taste - industrial but elegant. We loved the concrete floors which beautifully reflected the lighting in our photos. We liked the large barn doors and open rafters, the brick walls, as well as the cantina style lighting which was dimmable.
2. Their pricing is extremely reasonable, which is rare for Orlando.
3. The location provides wonderful backdrops and scenery for photos before the reception. We took photos on the train tracks which turned out beautiful.

This was a great venue for the price. They let you use your own caterer and bring your own alcohol which helps save money. We got a lot of compliments from our guests on the unique venue. We originally planned on having our ceremony at a nearby garden but it began pouring an hour before our wedding. We were able to call the staff at the WPFM and they set up chairs on the covered patio so that we could have our ceremony there.

I had a low budget DIY wedding and the Farmers Market was the perfect place for this. First of all it's a beautiful venue with a lot of character for a low price. Being owned by the city keeps the price down and if you're considering it I suggest you act fast because I booked my date 15 months in advance and someone took my original date only the day before I called. We had the ceremony and cocktail hour on the porch and the reception inside. Since everything is in one spot it makes it a lot easier for the DIY bride and I think hiring a DOC is not necessary. If you do have a lot of set up i would suggest buying an extra hour (normal rental is from 4-12), I had a lot but we made it work (it was a little stressful though). the switch over from ceremony to cocktail hour was a bit confusing for guests i think, make sure you have a plan and people to execute it for you. My plan was that everyone would follow us off the porch to the surrounding area while friends cleared the chairs. People didn't catch on and started moving the chairs themselves until we made an announcement. Over all it was an amazing space and everyone gave me a lot of compliments. Working with the facility was easy too, they returned e-mails and phone calls promptly and on the day of our site manager was very helpful (he dimmed the lights on request and sprang into action when I told him I need to add 2 charis).

The moment my husband and I walked into the Farmer's Market, we knew we had the right venue! It's a beautiful building that doubled as both our ceremony venue and our reception venue. We held our ceremony on the covered porch outside and the reception inside. The ambiance of the building was very natural, which is exactly how we are. We made one change after submitting our floor plan, and that was changing the first two tables to 10 people instead of 8 people. The tables weren't changed, but luckily, 4 people were MIA, so it worked out for the best!!

If I could give a 10 for value for cost I would absolutely give it! This is such a unique venue and fit our personalities so much better than a golf course or hotel venue. This is one of the only places we found in Orlando that let us use our own caterer which was huge to us since we wouldn't be locked into those oh you are using abc location that means your only option for food is xyz and they will charge you a ridiculous amount because you HAVE to use them.

Beware a Saturday wedding might take over a year for a free weekend, but TOTALLY worth the wait:)

It also worked really good for our 90 person guest list. Too many more than that and it would have felt really crowded.

The WPFM was a unique place to host both our ceremony and reception. It was the perfect size for our 80 guests. Everything was set up exactly like we had requested and the staff was extremely helpful from start to finish. It was a little pricey for us, because they charged time and a half for NYE, but compared to other venues, it was reasonably priced. I liked that we were able to bring in our own caterer, as that also kept the cost down. Overall, a great venue I would recommend to future couples looking for a not-so-traditional wedding location.

We had our reception at the WPFM and it was awesome! The ladies in the WP Civic Center who make all the reservations for the WPFM were so flexible. I changed the time I wanted the rental to start 3 times and they were so accommodating. The Farmer's Market just had a little renovation work done and it looked great. It has the rustic brick walls and concrete floor that are amazing. In the renovation, they put a fresh coat of paint on all painted surfaces, added ceiling fans and totally revamped the bathrooms w/ granite countertops. It is a great place to have a reception that will have your guests talking in a very good way; it’s got a uniqueness that you won’t find a hotel ballroom.

We LOVED this location for our wedding, it was perfect for our ceremony and reception and completely fit the feel we were going for. The person assigned to 'set up' for us that night was terrible. We asked for 100 chairs, there were about 20 or so thrown out there, with no order to them. Thankfully, my husband and his groomsmen (all 7 of them) were able to knock it out, no problem.
Advice: get married on Friday night there, not Saturday. We were able to hang decorations on Wed. afternoon and would have been able to get in all day Thursday and Friday if needed. If we would have had it on Saturday, we would not have been able to get in until 4pm to do ANY decorating or setting up and rental time is over at midnight!
Overall, a GORGEOUS, clean and unique location!

Advice: get married on Friday night there, not Saturday. We were able to hang decorations on Wed. afternoon and would have been able to get in all day Thursday and Friday if needed. If we would have had it on Saturday, we would not have been able to get in until 4pm to do ANY decorating or setting up and rental time is over at midnight!
Overall, a GORGEOUS, clean and unique location! Read less

I was so excited to have my wedding reception at the winter park farmer's market. It was a wonderful atmosphere and everyone enjoyed themselves. There was plenty of room, we had 130 people invited. The only drawback was that on saturdays because they have the market going on in the morning the earlier you can get in there to set up is at 4pm. which was a little bit of a crunch for us since our cocktail hour started at 530pm. But overall it was great and everything worked out.

Overall the Farmer's market was the best possible venue for our reception. We really love the space with exposed brick walls, stained concrete floors and the huge patio. It worked out well and went off without a hitch on the day of our wedding. We did have some issues when we were first trying to book the space and had trouble getting anyone to work with us at all, it was like begging to pay them to the rent the space. However, it has since changed hands for who manages the space and they are much better than they originally were. Also you can't beat what the space offers for the price, it was perfect and definitely would recommend it to anyone else. Just power through any vendor issues you may have.

I loved this site & so did our guests. Don't let the outside fool you. This is a fabulous venue with loads of charm. The site was clean & we didn't have any trouble with people. Everyone loved having the patio & it was great for our cocktail hour. Everyone was just so impressed that it wasn't just a normal venue.

I adored working with the office staff. They answered any questions that I had and always responded in a timely manner. I was aware of all of the rules and regulations before hand. However, I rated the venue so low because the on-site "staff" was so awful. I was told by some family members that he spoke rudely to them. He also tried to end our reception by 10 pm when my planners, my DJ, and my caterer all had an end time of 11 pm. I was pulled aside and was lied to my face that my planners told him 10 pm end time, when I know they would never forget that we always discussed an 11 pm end time. I knew all vendors had to be out by midnight, that's why I hired the best in the industry to work my event. Every other vendor, besides the Farmers Market staff, was on their A-game on-site. I was so thrilled with how professional the office staff was, but I was ten times more disgusted with the on-site "staff".

The Winter Park Farmer's Market is a great place to hold a wedding, or any celebration. It is an old converted train station, all worn brick, dark wood and twinkle lights. The only downside is that the rail road still runs every day (they moved the station to about a block away), so you will probably have a couple trains go by during your event.

I gave them a 4/5 on flexibility because we wanted to use sparklers for our grand exit, but we weren't allowed to have them on the property. We had to go just outside to use them.

Received so many compliments on how great this place was! It's very romantic and charming. I was afraid with a wedding is August it might not be well insulated and would be hot, but they had cold air blasting! Pro: With it's charming look not much decorations are needed, Con: They are pretty strict with how you decorate like hanging stuff on the walls, open flame, etc. They are pretty strict on what they will tolerate and what they won't but it's for the preservation of a historic place in downtown Winter Park.
