Food Hall vs Food Court – different? Marketplace at Avalon Park

Is there a difference? Oh my goodness yes!!!

One of the biggest differences…….a food hall is a destination for foodies catering to people who love to eat and try different foods. A food court is designed to keep shoppers shopping, stopping briefly to refuel – for more shopping.

Marketplace at Avalon Park

Opened in summer/fall 2020 there are a number of food options, a general store and (of course) was anchored by a local brewery – Bowigens.

Food Halls are usually a collection of small locally developed restaurant concepts offering an assortment of unique food and beverage items, usually cooked from scratch.

Here’s a sampling of choices at Avalon Park:

There is one shop, specializing in local and/or Florida Merchandise.

So what did we eat? We haven’t tried all of the options but visited 3 different ones on this visit.

Pulled Brazilian chicken sandwich with yucca fries – Ginny

Poke bowl with salmon and other goodies – Adrienne

Gumbo was a starter – Eric

Followed by Korean BBQ beef and various sides – Eric again.

We topped it off with ice cream and beignets.

Just another line-up for Orlando’s food hall scene.
