“So much fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

New to the Dayton area so decided to check out the market, and boy was it a good decision! Locally-grown flowers and produce, hand-made (and eco-friendly!) soaps and lotions, fresh-baked bread, delicious food already prepared, household items, jewelry and clothes, live music on Saturdays, and on and on. I will definitely be visiting the market as often as my bank account will allow! :) Over 40 vendors so tons to see.

“Very impressed with this market....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We sure did not give ourselves enough time to fully enjoy this attraction. The many offerings were more than we anticipated to find. Very nice market shelter. Great to see a huge crowd on a Saturday morning. Many vendors offered breakfast and lunch options on site. Order and grab a table to eat at. Huge variety of vendors. I had hoped to see more vendors selling produce, but surprised to see vendors selling items beyond produce: body products, ethnic foods, jewelry, gardening gifts, etc.

“Great market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Getting crowded due to its popularity. Watch what you but some of the vegetables are NOT locally grown of that is important to you. 'Caffeine' is a great spot for nice cup of coffee. Good variety of vendors. Music on some/most Saturdays.
