Variety of food options and some shops mixed in between. Decent size- easy to walk the entire square and back. Definitely worth a stop for dinner and drinks!

One of the best things about Market Square is there's always something going on. From the water fountains for children to run through to street magicians and music talent. The foid is always a wide variety as well. Worth checking out.

As far as I know, they are. I have not heard otherwise. If you have a restaurant in mind, you might want to double check with that individual restaurant.
