Smartly renovated public market; is currently a mixture of retail and restaurants. Lots of natural light and eating areas after one chooses from the different vendors. It was a short walk from the hotel we were staying at .

We were here for a private party on the second floor but LOVED this space. Many different vendors and just the right amount of traffic in here. Will come again!
