Loved this small market. Was able to walk there, enjoy lunch, as there are a number of local food trucks. Some of the best (and sometimes biggest) fruit & veggies around! Pricey. Worth it.

The market is a great way to find what you are looking for, whether it is fish, meat, or some kind of fruit. Whatever you are looking for, the market is likely have it in one of the stalls!
