Pros

  • Great fresh produce and local artisan foods.
  • Anything you buy is supporting the local economy.
  • The best eggs you can buy retail, if you get there early enough.
  • Lots of variety, plenty to look at and talk about.
  • There’s a small playground at the southernmost end of the park.

Cons

  • Not exactly the cheapest place to buy your groceries.
  • Gets very crowded around lunchtime, can be a little hectic for tinies.
  • It’s kind of hard to juggle shopping bags, your wallet, tomatoes and children. Bring a backpack.
  • Unless it’s summer, nowhere to sit down when snacking.
