Open only on Sunday's 9 to 1 or until the food runs out.
I'm a bit confused. Some of the reviews say open Sunday's only and some say Saturdays. Can someone tell me exactly when this is open for lunch? Is the "market" something else and only on certain days. Even their website does not make this clear and we really want to visit. thanks

Sundays from 9:30am-1:00pm. It's highly recommended to get there before 10 a.m. due to the crowds and parking availability.
