When you're looking for fresh produce and meat, this is a must stop place. But craving some great Italian food--try Monte Lauro or Salinos. There's plenty of vendors to keep you moving along the market. Explore all of it.

A great place to visit just to browse,or to find that organic food you've been searching for.Many market stands by Amish and Mennonite folk with home grown produce. You won't be disappointed.
