Grand Central Market Reviews
Everything looks fresh and delicious in this market. I had a good time wandering between the stands. There are plenty of options and you can fill up on fresh fruit during a daily tour of the city more »
Went here for dinner. Lots of choice and really good authentic food market. Rough and ready place with a good mix of traditional Mexican stands, burgers, craft beers and even gourmet peanut butter... more »
This is a great place to visit, especially for lunch. It's generally very busy, but the range of food options is quite varied. Pricing can be from expensive to affordable, you just have to have a wander around and have a look. Pretty Central to a few nice downtown attractions so you can easily spend a few hours in and around the market. (Cool Hill trolley across the road) Some steps, which make getting a stroller or wheelchair around interesting, but there are ramps, you just have to go the long way around sometimes. It's worth coming into the city at least once to have a look.
Lots of delicious food choices. Super packed with people, so hold on tight to your kids if you bring them. Places to sit inside and outside. When we went, it was easier to go sit outside (felt better out there anyways). Prices were around $10 and above. Look on the website for more details on vendors.
