Numerous restaurants provide a vast array of meals, all excellent. The meats and cheeses are all excellent quality. Fruits and vegetables are the best in the area. Pricing is normal for the quality of the items available. Plenty of parking and bus service nearby.

Anything you are looking for is here. All fresh fruits, meat, vegetables, bakery, etc. Several seafood stands and Italian food stands. They even have several places to eat at very reasonable prices. The best fresh food market in the area.

My girlfriend and I were traveling so we couldn't buy the homemade unusual sausages, etc.. But we tried the prepared foods and loved them, yum! Great stop, even organic produce and dairy. Would love to shop there weekly but we were visiting.

Gigantic indoor farmer's market with both fresh and cooked food just like Reading Terminal. Many amish stands. Indoor with its own building with plenty of parking in a mall area. Could be listed as an "attraction".
