We came here thinking there would be lots of shopping options, but it was mostly food. However, we loved it! They have an olive oil/balsamic vinegar store, and the most amazing ice cream shop ever! Would definitely return for some Mexican Chili ice cream. :)

Market makes you think it is going to be shops. It is almost entirely restaurants. Go hungry and try some new cuisines.

We expected to find local fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs, milk and baguettes of bread; instead we found mostly eateries, I did buy some good Chilean sea bass at $40.00 a pound, which I don't find in my town. Other than that, there was nothing else...More

We wanted to stop in for some fresh baked bread and have a look around. The bakery here is great. We also enjoyed looking at the spices, since we do a lot of cooking. There are ample places to grab a bite to eat for...More

We loved the experience of visiting this market. They had everything from cooking classes to a juice bar to homemade soaps and baked goods. The meat market had an impressive selection and the bakery was to die for. Be prepared to bust open your wallet,...More

They are bad at answering questions, on line; try to find their phone number and give them a call, or, call the city of Grand Rapids tourism bureau! Good luck.
