The vibe of this large market is chill. Live music while you eat from any of the wide range of food vendors (French, Hawaiian, Mexican) The selection of fresh fruits, vegetables and fish meet our needs.

Had lunch here, some very good falafel tacos. The whole market is only open on sundays but well worth it. Probably 40 stalls including food, arts crafts,etc. including vegan choices. Had to pay $2 for parking but it’s worth it.

flowers, plants. Loved this market. Since we rented a condo, we took home a selection of prepared foods...all delicious...even middle eastern! Thai, and more. Seems to be the biggest Farmers Market with the best variety of all we've visited...

The traffic was crazy when we went, but we persevered, found a great spot, and enjoyed our morning shopping and lunch at the market. There were six of us and we all ate different things—crepes, poke, tacos, Kalua pork, grilled cheese. The shopping and people...More
