Florida Guide > Days Out
We set off from Championsgate around 0800 in the morning to make our journey to Webster Market which is held every Monday morning. The actual number of miles is only forty five, but our Sat Nav told us it would take at least ninety minutes to get there. We had been recommended to go early and have breakfast at the Speckled Butterbean which is to be found on the outskirts of the market. So, with only a coffee in our bellies, we set off along SR27 North. We passed what is left of the Orange Groves and noticed a great deal of new commercial shopping centres and restaurants springing up everywhere. We filled up with gas at Walmart at Cagans Crossing’s which at the time of writing was $2. 77 and which we thought was reasonable and comparably cheap from what we noticed on the way. Imagine our dismay when we got to a newer Walmart and the gas was $2. 69! !
Negotiating the roadworks which seem to be almost finished, so no hold ups, we turned left onto SR50. This is a pretty straight road and we passed through the City of Clermont - a few shops and professional buildings - and travelled around 20 miles before we turned right towards the advertised Farmer’s Market. It was quite pleasant to be driving with green fields all around, cattle grazing and plenty of hay bales that the farmers had harvested.
We reached the market but missed the free car park so found ourselves entering another car park which was $3 so not too costly. The place was heaving and it was only 0930 in the morning. We wanted to get our highly recommended breakfast, so asked for directions to the Speckled Butterbean. I doubt if we would have ever found it ourselves. It is a very County Style Restaurant with a buffet breakfast. Certainly not the best we have tasted but for $4. 95 was reasonable value, and unlimited coffee at $1. 25 was certainly more than welcome.
The market had rows and rows of indoor and outdoor stalls, selling fresh produce which was so much cheaper than the supermarkets, plants & tree’s, orchids galore, guns, knives, underwear, sunglasses, shoes, freshly baked bread, puppies by the cage full, birds and more birds, snakes, turtles, you name it, they had it.
There were lots of places to get something to eat and drink, and believe me, after walking round looking at what was mostly tacky things, we needed to have another drink before we wound our way back to Championsgate.
