Food choices are a little overwhelming. Great selection of all ethnic foods. Also several baked goods options. Very crowded. Fresh candy and chocolate over priced. Thought the food options were reasonable. Saw that the closing time for the market is 6pm but by 4pm some...More

Strongly suggest eating at Molly Malloys and getting the pulled pork if you're into that. I went on Saint Patty's Day so it was very crowded. Live music outside of the market. Very entertaining place with very bright people. The food was very good and...More

What a treat. Lots of different foods, deli’s fresh fish, gifts, flowers, etc. We really enjoyed our time there. We went in March and it wasn’t too terribly busy. I can’t fathom how busy it is in the summer.

No, they do not but it is easily accessible on public transportation (which I recommend) or there are lots nearby & on street parking (be careful of the PPA- they love to give tickets)

Many of the food vendors have counter service, but not all. There a a few areas with open seating for visitors to bring their take out meals to and enjoy eating while taking in all the sites of the market.
