It is not the best market I have ever been to but it is really good. The size of it is the most amazing part. Seems like it takes up blocks and blocks, multiple buildings and a wide variety of produce, meats, and other items.

Set in a very busy set of streets with folks and trucks in constant turmoil. A real slice of life unlike the more quaint and "pretty" city markets. We would rate this as "don't go unless you have lots of time on your hands".

This is what farmers markets were like before they were called farmers markets, and we bought our produce in supermarkets; and is a great place to get fresh fruits and vegetables and everything looked great.
