This quirky market had it all, it was almost overwhelming trying to take it all in, some of the shops close early if they sell out of food

Not my favorite and would not eat there.... Very dirty and somewhat unsanitary. Would not feel safe coming to this market alone. Some may love it, but it is not for me.

I live in the city but don't get to the terminal enough. There is a great selection of food and some unique shops. There is some type of food for everyone.

No, they do not but it is easily accessible on public transportation (which I recommend) or there are lots nearby & on street parking (be careful of the PPA- they love to give tickets)
