Ocala Downtown Market @ Ocala Downtown Market
Oct 27 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

The Ocala Downtown Market (ODM) is the place where a diverse array of farmers, artisans, craftspeople, and food trucks come together to sell their products to customers from Ocala, Marion County, and beyond. A true destination location, ODM is set just blocks off of the Ocala Downtown Square, in a beautiful open-air Market Pavilion. Besides permanent roof cover, the facility also includes large overhead fans, restrooms, a nearby ATM, and water fountains.

Vendors have a variety of booth choices to choose from, including both indoor and outdoor, booths with water and/or electric, and more!

The Market is held on Fridays from 3pm until 7pm and Saturdays from 9am until 2pm. It is the vision of the City of Ocala (which owns the facility) and Ocala Downtown Market, Inc. to see the Market add additional days in the future. This expansion in the number of days and hours the Market is open is expected to occur gradually, over the span of a few years.

The Market Pavilion is also available for rental. More information about rental reservations can be found on our rental page here.

Prospective vendors should visit our Vendor page here.
