We found great meats inside and great gifts outside. Picked up some boneless short ribs and a Korean marinate for the grill. Many different kinds of food to choose from in the market. We will return.

Soft shell crab was delicious, shell could have been softer. I was eating about 11 AM. About half a dozen regulars (I guess) were relishing the pancakes. One guy,looking like a athlete, drowned his pancakes in syrup. I'll be back for pancakes.

Nice neighborhood with some good restaurants. However, the market was rather small and underwhelming: there were only a couple of interesting artisan stands.

I'm not sure. You may want to contact them directly via e-mail prior to your visit just to make sure. Things change faster than we can keep up with these days.
