The city market is nice but not impressive compared to similar markets. There are many options of local items so it’s worth a visit if you have extra time and are in the area, but I wouldn’t make it a destination stop.

There may not be as many vendors but the ones that are here work very hard to try to ensure everyone has a great experience. Hopefully you will give us a second chance.

A great place to meet friends, or strangers who could become friends. Always busy and popular with cruise passengers in the summer and fall months. Good variety of good food and local crafts, antiques and local characters. Space for eating, and the staff are attentive...More

My boyfriend and I like to go to the market monthly. It's cute and a nice spot to grab lunch.. I wish it had even more local and fresh foods though!

I can't help myself, when I'm uptown I want to make a stop at the market. I love walking through and checking out new foods and gifts. Sometimes you'll come across a gem. I also love how it's connected underground to Brunswick square.

Nothing really interesting here. We traipsed here from (and back to) the cruise ship terminal, hoping for something "different," but were disappointed.

Unfortunately we do not open on Sunday's. Most of our vendor's are family run businesses and Sunday is the only day they have off. I hope you can make it in another day. :)

I think that would be a very interesting fit for the market. I would like to meet to discuss further but yes I think that would be a nice addition to the market.
