Get Down to Our Roots
What defines Floral City is what once defined much of Florida. There was a time when the bounty of Florida was proudly displayed along roadsides throughout the state. Fresh fruit and vegetable stands are still prominent here. Ferris Groves, one of Florida’s most beloved retro fruit stands, welcomes guests with a cheery orange and white striped tent-style canopy that has hardly changed in fifty years. Just down the street other fruit and vegetable stands also display the latest Florida grown produce and treasured regional classics like boiled peanuts. The most popular festival of the year by far is the Floral City Strawberry Festival in early March. It’s worth the trip to just to taste the strawberry shortcake. You can even stay in a comfy cabin at one of two old fish-camp style resorts on Floral City Lake.
Experience Old Florida. Experience Floral City.
