LOTS of food choices for a nice meal and vendors who offer you assistance with your entertaining needs. Vendors offer flowers, desserts, cooking gadgets and linens. A true food lovers favorite place.

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.
