This is one of the country's oldest markets, and people here are justifiably proud of it. I especially like the bakery, which offers wonderful, old-world bread varieties that are great, and the coffee brewer that roasts his beans on site. When the fresh produce arrives,...More

It is about a 1-1/2 mile walk to city market from the Kemper Street Station. You can catch a bus or cab if the walk is too long. As far as places to eat, there are plenty - either small places in the market or others nearby... More
