The Best Farmer’s Market Of Central Florida Is Here
International Market World began in 1981 by Vince To with his father and brother. It was originally just seven aisles. Over the years it has grown, building by building, to the 30-acre operation it is now— nearly three times its initial size. It is situated next to a farm where Vince raises buffalo, alligators, hogs, and cows. Some of these animals are then exhibited at the flea market. The live gator exhibit gives people the chance to view one of these fearsome beasts in a safe setting, and to learn how to respect them in the wild. A specialist with over 30 years of experience makes sure the gators are properly cared for while educating the public for free on the lifestyle and habitat of these native predators. The gator show was established over 20 years ago and has been a perennial favorite.

In addition to the exciting entertainment, diverse shopping, and fresh farmers’ market, International Market World hosts annual events that are attended by Polk County residents, visitors from all around Central Florida, and tourists from around the world.
