Love this place. It’s a collection of gourmet food and drink Options. And you can purchase food for one vendor and enjoy it with wine or beer of your choice from another vendor. The vibe is casual, vibrant, & friendly.

The Public Market (Alma del Pueblo) aka "Soul of the Town" had trouble keeping tenants at the beginning of this new venture in Santa Barbara. However, now they have more successful restaurants in place. There is a sports bar, a good Mexican restaurant, Ca Dario...More
