Whatever the season, the farmers are there with fresh produce (depending on the season) flowers, bread, cheese, milk, plants, and a variety of crafts. A visit makes a nice Saturday morning (closes at noon).

Always lovely to walk around whether the market is there, or not. Lots of tourists taking photographs, and a great meeting place after shopping.

Just happened by on Saturday Morning when the Farmer's Market was going on! Oh my, so wonderful! Delicious food, bread, hummus, coffee, yogurt, and so much more. Beautiful flowers and craft vendors. So glad we got to be there!

Great place to meet people or wait for the free Kingstreet Trolley. It's right on Kingstreet in the heart of the historical area. The City Hall building is being refurbished at this time.

I never been in the city hall. But is has a ledge around the fountain to sit and relax...a pretty setting. You can see many people stopping to take pictures. There is usually a board telling you of all the upcoming events in Old Town.

I find this little plaza to be underutilized. We missed the farmers market because it occurred earlier in the day, by saturday afternoon there was no much going on there. I would have expected music and smaller vendors, it would have made a huge difference.

The fountains and the huge American flag drew us to this spot. There is also a regualary schedule Farmer's Market held here. Can catch the free trolley right in front.
