Established in 1934, when a dozen local farmers parked their trucks on an open field (once a dairy farm) to sell fresh produce to local residents, the Market has remained true to its roots ever since. With nearly 100 dining, shopping and grocery opportunities, Farmers Market has something for everyone. More than seventy-five years later the Farmers Market remains the one stop shop for every visitor’s needs.

Yes there were some nice produce on sale but mostly restaurants with overpriced menus. Sure there was quite a bit of variety but overall we found the experience underwhelming and the food mediocre.

This spot is fun sort of a farmers market but really an interesting food court. A diverse selection of shops and restaurants. We had food at The Gumbo Pot, killer Po Boys!!!

I have been here a number of times in my life but not for around 20 years. The "market" is now much more of a food court than a seller of produce and fresh food. It is a great place to meet for lunch, but...More
