As good as Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia just at a slower pace. We snacked on meat pies, broccoli salad, lemon squares and washed it all down with fresh apple cider. Very family friendly!

What a great assortment of foods and other delights. We saw beautiful fresh fruits & veggies, teas, fragrances, handmade items, and the staff at any of the vendor sites were super helpful & friendly. Certainly a welcoming experience for a visitor.

We toured the market and bought breakfast sandwiches which were very good. Nice market with lots of tempting produce and food,. Liked walking around - not too crowded. Wish we had more time to explore the area as well. Good local selections.

A great variety of foods, gifts and treats. So many foods to try it's hard to decide. Try the aged cheese and sweet bologna at S. Clyde Weaver. Also, get a sweet treat at Uncle Leroy's Candy Kitchen. Definitely worth the time.
