  • You almost come across this place by chance and it has all the characteristics of being a hidden gem. There are around 20 food stalls here that are notable for their quality and diverse range of food....  more »
  • Pick up food from about 20 great food stalls. Everyone gets what they want and then go to the back and enjoy!  more »
  • The market has something for everyone, how can you not find something to eat here? The prices and portions are in line with what you would expect downtown. You can spend $10-15 and walk out satisfied. There are some food vendors I prefer over others, you just have to get there and try a bunch of them. This place is for tourists and locals. Seating fills up, show up early for lunch to get a table with chairs. There are usually several stand around tables open. The rumbling you'll occasional hear is a train rolling overhead. The place is always clean too. Very enjoyable experience.
  • Went here for the first time with some girlfriends of mine last week— the variety in vendors is awesome! (I was definitely mislead by the ‘French’.) Sushi and macaroon finds here are delicious, but also a great spot to meet with friends who may have different tastes than yours.
