Love visiting this market whether I buy anything or not. We just wandered from our walk around Merritt Lake through the market so my sister could grab a few specialities not easily found at even the best large stores. Great variety and local color!

Although there are crafts and other items for sale, the primary focus is food - a wide variety of international dishes and locally produced food and juices. If you can't find something you'd like to eat here, you likely can't find it anywhere.

As an out-of-town visitor from Wisconsin, visiting this market for the first time, love the variety of fresh produce. Nice variety of fruits and vegetables, along with other products as well (flowers, soaps, etc). Prices were reasonable and love the availability of fresh produce.
