Concierge.com's insider take:
A vast outdoor marketone of the largest of its kindstands in the shadow of the downtown high-rises. It includes acres of cut and potted flowers and a sprawling International Market specializing in mass-produced handicrafts such as Hacienda-style furniture and exuberantly glazed Mexican ceramics. But country folk and urban foodies alike flock to the block-long metal sheds full of fresh-from-the-farm produceeverything from watermelons to peanutsso voluptuously shaped and beautifully displayed that it might be described as food pornography. Farmers vie for the most perfect presentation, with kale tied in neat bunches, strawberries piled in little pyramids, and the string beans neatly arranged in pint-size boutique baskets. Samples are frequently offered.
Open daily 7 am to 6 pm.
