Great market with many food and drink options. Parking is usually pretty easy to find on the side streets and safety hasn't ever been a concern for me here. Food is not the only option as there are some nice boutique stores with many different products, especially upstairs. My greatest joy is usually from buying food at the market and walking the streets, just taking in the inner city vibe and atmosphere.
Ample parking. Delicious food. Quenching cocktails. Good people. Great vibe.
