“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

It was great going there on a Wednesday, I believe and seeing all the vendors with their wares on sale. There is also a lot of food vendors with fresh fruit and vegtables.

“I Live Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

No, I don't inhabit the park as a resident, but live close enough to find myself there on most market days, and on the off-market days, I'm just as likely to be shopping somewhere nearby (Whole Foods, DSW, Trader Joe's, Barnes & Noble, etc). The park has been renovated in the last few years, and is really a wonderful place for a walk, a nosh, a grocery run, a subway entrance, or people-watching. Go.
