It's fun to walk around and look at the different shops and goods. Get some cheese from the artisan cheese place and try some pastries from the bakery!

Great place to experience a significant variety of food from around the world. More like a bazaar than your typical American marketplace. It can be pretty crowded and tight, and each vendor is an independent shop, so you may make many smaller transactions. I ate some great Pad Thai, some bubble tea and some falafel all in the same market.

I wasn't expecting so many stands honestly. I wish I remembered all of the stands I went to.y favorite was the Indian food stand. They have Indian tacos that were to die for and the guy working was so friendly and helpful. Definitely a must go to when visiting.

Yummy food, crafts, groceries. Think what a market looks like in Asia and this is it. Lots of independent tiny stores and restaurants. Highly recommend going there to eat. Authentic cuisine from around the world.

A neat experience. So many different booths and ethnic food to try! I wouldn't recommend taking a stroller because some areas are very tight to get into. Stop by Salty Tart for some yummy pastries!

Though there were definitely many different global cuisines available inside the market, conditions in many of the restaurants/eateries seemed a bit "unsanitary" to us. The food we did purchase tasted a bit old and like it had spent a little too much time in the display case. I honestly wouldn't recommend it to friends passing through.

Well, this is not Brooklyn level or Portland level in choice etc. the two stops inside that seem worthwhile are Manny Torta and salted tart. It is multi ethnic tho

The Midtown Market is a collection of small shops and eateries comprised of many different cultures. It is packed with various food shops and others such as gifts and clothing. While I am not sure that I would make a special trip out of my way, but if in the area it is a great place to grab a quick... More

We were here several years ago and wanted to make another trip through the place to see what type of vendors are there and making it. We were pleasantly surprised by the growth, and seeming prosperity of a number of the shops. There are several African clothing and jewelry shops, along with curios and musical instruments, and several Asian shops... More
