Orlando’s population is increasing rapidly, which is causing traffic to worsen. However, this growth is also leading to a greater demand for diverse food options, which has led to the birth of ethnic markets.

To help meet this demand, I have compiled a list of places where you can purchase ethnic food and ingredients, including specialty markets that cater to specific cultures. Whether you’re looking for Indian spices, Korean snacks, or Latin American ingredients, these markets have got you covered.

Hispanic Markets

Fancy Fruit

They have nine stores in the Orlando area, but I have only visited the one in East Colonial. I was pleasantly surprised to find reasonable prices and good-quality products. Their produce section has a lot of variety, the meat prices are excellent, and they have many Goya items. Going there transports me to the supermarkets back home in Puerto Rico.

Bravo Supermarket

They have 14 locations in and around Orlando. I visited the one in Colonial and loved the Hot Food Bar. It’s all Hispanic food, and they had a decent-sized menu. I had chicken, rice, and plantains, and they were delicious! Their produce, spices, and overall selection were very lovely. I found some of my favorite childhood snacks there.Β

Key Food Supermarket

Florida alone has 68 locations, with 8 in the Central Florida area, including Port Orange. One of our contributors says, “I grew up in Nicaragua, and Key Foods reminds me of home. The smell, the wooden vegetable boxes, the way it’s organized, and the ‘cafeteria’ in the back with the Hispanic food you’ll find anywhere.”

Asian Markets

Lotte Plaza Market Orlando

I love this place. It’s far from where I live, but the trip is worth it. They have a lot of variety in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean food items. They also have a big fish and produce section. What I love most about this place is that it has a food court and bakery, so you can shop and eat!Β

Enson Market

Everyone I know who cooks Asian food frequents this place. It’s big and has everything you need, like fish, meats, fruits, produce, and a delicious bakery. Best of all, they have reasonable prices.

I-Fresh Supermarket

If you’re looking for a quick stop to get what you need, this is the place for you. It’s a no-frills market that has a little bit of everything. I like it because I can get in and out quickly. We always go there when we’re running low on Chinese snacks or want some Chinese baked goods.

Indian Markets

Patel Brothers

Our friends from India say this place is simply the best in Orlando. They sell fresh produce, festival items, household items, spices, and spiritual items. Everyone raves about the baked goods they sell, so you can eat before or after you shop there.Β

Brazilian Markets

Silva’s MarketCAM03997

A great Brazilian store that offers an array, albeit limited, of Brazilian snacks, staples and drinks. It has a hot food buffet with all kinds of Brazilian comfort food like feijoada, churrascaria, fish and a mini salad bar- priced by the pound. A butcher and charcuterie is on site as well, for fresh cuts of meat, pork and sausage.

Honestly, Orlando has SO many ethnic markets to offer. Just doing a simple google search for “[insert ethnicity/country] market” and tons will pop up. The ones featured in this article are just a few I’ve been to and love.

If you know of any let us with a blurb about why you like and we’ll feature you in our article!
