A high end food court that is pretty small but has lots of options. Some seating outside where a lot of people had brought their lunch.

This is a very cool area, although it's small. There are several buildings offering a number of small shops. It was a good stop!

The market had a variety of restaurants and shops where you can purchase wine, cheese, crackers, fruit, etc. Lots of variety so should have something for everyone from smoothies to pizza to beer.

Our family went here to accommodate our different dietary needs. Got a delicious blueberry dairy-free smoothie at On The Bus. Also got a very tasty salad for a reasonable price at The Green Kitchen.
