Plain and simple. There is food for everyone's tastebuds, and it was crowded. Great place to get a takeout order and sit outside.

Yes, it was crowded but it was manageable. The sights, sounds, smells, and temptations of this market are second to none. There is absolutely something for every taste at this market. I would recommend a couple of hours just to wander and enjoy the experience....More

Wow, it took over an hour just to choose where to have lunch! So many places and a very interesting walk-around! I think it best to go back at least a second time.

We had high expectations from the place considering the rave reviews about the place. Honestly, me & my husband were kind of disappointed with the food stalls. Only stall which caught our eyes was the Sweets stall which offered Canolis, unique pastries & creme custards....More
