Best Place Where Someone Did the Right Thing

East End Market
3201 Corrine Drive, 321-236-3316,

It would’ve been easy to get a dead mall somewhere, throw a bunch of booths into it, and call it a “market.” Cheaper, too. Instead, the East End team – John and Kamrin Rife, Gabby Othon Lothrop and Heather Grove – did it the hard way: They converted an old two-story structure in the walkable heart of Audubon Park into a local food hub, and now we have a vibrant niche for entrepreneurs that is exquisite, unique and fun. It may not be the cheapest place in town to get excellent smoothies, locally grown vegetables and meats, and interesting cheeses, but you know your money is going to the actual producers, not some schmuck on Wall Street. Enjoy!
