I shop here weekly for fresh produce, meats, deli and dairy products. Friendly workers at each stand. There is a nice variety of bake stands, side dishes, gluten free and organic stands. You can also eat breakfast, lunch or supper here.

The fresh produce, outstanding seafood, deli, and butcher stalls, restaurant offerings, and even a barber shop make this place a congregating location for hundreds of people every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. So much available.

Lots and lots of venders to choose from. Prices are reasonable, plus you are helping out a local farmer. They have anything you may be hungry for. They have an antique dealer, a dry goods store, and even cotton candy😉 Something for everyone!
