Cute open air market, with many places to eat, including a French hut with fresh food. Lots of interesting little shops, some are really touristic but some are surprising ! Best donuts ever there too :-)

This is HUGE! Almost every kind of food you can think. Even if you don’t eat, it’s fun just walking around, looking.

Focused on very fresh fruit and vegetables (as it should be), but also several prepared food offerings of a variety of cuisines. How about fresh specialty strawberries, then blueberries, Malasada's,...More

We went here on a whim. There’s several “tourist trinket” type shops, which we weren’t too interested in, but there’s a lot of fresh fruit and veggies to choose from. It’s grown locally, some organic, there’s some of the harder to find tropical fruits, and...More
