UPDATE: The City Council meeting for Monday, January 9 has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 11. 


According to paperwork filed with the City of Orlando, Orlando Unity, a subsidiary entity of Mission Development Enterprises, is applying for a Temporary Use Permit to operate an open-air flea market on a 9-acre stretch of land at 3901 Hailles Place [GMap].

Orlando Unity, in partnership with Orlando residents Herbert and Inez Walker, will be using the market to raise funds to build 20 single-family homes on the land, which was platted for that use in 2005. The market will run from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends only, with onsite surface parking providing 192 spaces at the entrance to the site and vendors towards the eastern edge.

The application also calls for a stage to be built in order to host live entertainment at the market. The center loop is an ambulatory for emergency vehicle access, surrounded with a concrete walkway. The crossed-out squares to the right denote the vendor tents.

The permit is currently marked for approval at the January 9 City Council meeting and would expire on January 9, 2018, with a possibility for a one-year extension.
