Inspired by some of America's most well-known marketplaces, Orlando's 'Artegon Marketplace' serves as Florida's very own "anti-mall." With its family-friendly atmosphere and dozens of talented artisans, the indoor marketplace is the perfect place for residents and those attending Trend Hunter’s Orlando innovation conference to shop local.

Artegon Marketplace is a sprawling indoor shopping center with local artisans selling their wares alongside more well-known brands. Among shops such as Big J's Toys and Blue Coast Eyewear, the mall also houses a number of food stalls, crafting studios and even a cinema. The mixtures of food, retail and entertainment has made the marketplace a go-to-destination for locals and tourists who are looking for an alternative to the city's famous theme parks.

With a growing number of consumers looking for ways to shop local, this unique shopping center demonstrates the appeal of artisan marketplaces.
