We went to the other 2 farmers markets in the area and this one was our favorite, although not a true produce market, the shops had variety and a good lunch cafe.

This is a perfect place for gift shopping or enjoying a casual lunch. Lot's of mom & pop shops and local products. If you plan to visit during the holiday season, expect a crowd. Also hours are limited, check their hours before heading over.
