There is tons of vendors all over the place! It was fun to Walk around in check out all the different vendors as well as see downtown and all it has to offer as well. All the vendors were super kind and the food was great. I highly recommend checking it out at least once If not multiple times.
Nice. Easy to park. Excellent selection, and mix of artisans. I suppose they could always use more. Might as well throw some fine art in there.
