Its the best place to look and see all of the vendors and food booths, so many choices, really worth a look. Seems to be the place where the locals shop a lot.

Made a visit to this place while my lady was on jury duty. I have to say that the place is clean and has almost anything you want. If your hungry and can't find what you want your not hungry.

On the surface, a place this popular may scream "tourist" attraction, but this is a real market. Not too many tourists in the market for whole trout, morel mushrooms and slab bacon. Meaning: In between the stalls for honey, mushrooms and olive oil are real...More

Many of the food vendors have counter service, but not all. There a a few areas with open seating for visitors to bring their take out meals to and enjoy eating while taking in all the sites of the market.
Gluten free options?
