“Was a bit of a let down.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I thought it was a farmer's market type of place. It's an indoor market. With stores instead of stalls. Some seating. Must say it all looked very delicious. The seafood market was extraordinary.

“Not sure what all the fuss is about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

There was plenty of food options, the smells were amazing but that's all it was. A place to get something to eat. The bathroom lines we ridiculously long as you would expect during the holiday season, there was not enough seating to accommodate all the visitors. I was expecting more history about the Nabisco company but found little.
I am sure if you went in a non peak time your expectations would be met.

“A bit too crowded ... not many locals ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Not many locals here as this seems to have been spawned by Food Network who has its studios above the market.

The food is pretty good and there are some pretty cool stores but for my taste too crowded and too many tourists ...

“Superb brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Great place with a lot of nice gourmet stores which often also act as restaurants. We had a marvelous brunch at Friedman's lunch, really delicious omelettes and mimosas!

“Be an Early Bird!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The market opens at 10. Be there at 10! It gets so crowded so fast. We actually got there at 9 and were lucky that Amy's Bread was open so we had breakfast. But most stores don't open till 10. We came back in afternoon and you could barely walk through it was so crowded. But it was Christmas Eve!
