There's a lot of stimulus here for the ears (languages a plenty), eyes, touch and taste. Be prepared to be delighted if you are up for it! Camel burgers to beautiful Moroccan textiles, it's all there. (3 Mexican places!) Lovely people and with international flair, colors, smells and beauty. Many of the food shops validate parking for 1.5 hours if... More

I have been there quite a few times and love the variety of food choices without having to drive all over town. They have so many fun events including music and dance groups and activities for the kids. Loved the Chili Contest in the Fall and we had so much fun last year on Global Soup Day and are looking...

We enjoyed meandering around the market before deciding on where to eat. We both chose a cuban sandwich from one of the stands and it was delicious. Although it was not a traditional cuban, it was still a very good sandwich big enough to share. We also shared a magnificent cookie from one of the bakeries. If you have a... More

It's an upscale, eclectic international food court with international gift stores. Something for everyone. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

It's fun to walk around and look at the different shops and goods. Get some cheese from the artisan cheese place and try some pastries from the bakery!

Great place to experience a significant variety of food from around the world. More like a bazaar than your typical American marketplace. It can be pretty crowded and tight, and each vendor is an independent shop, so you may make many smaller transactions. I ate some great Pad Thai, some bubble tea and some falafel all in the same market.

I wasn't expecting so many stands honestly. I wish I remembered all of the stands I went to.y favorite was the Indian food stand. They have Indian tacos that were to die for and the guy working was so friendly and helpful. Definitely a must go to when visiting.

Yummy food, crafts, groceries. Think what a market looks like in Asia and this is it. Lots of independent tiny stores and restaurants. Highly recommend going there to eat. Authentic cuisine from around the world.

A neat experience. So many different booths and ethnic food to try! I wouldn't recommend taking a stroller because some areas are very tight to get into. Stop by Salty Tart for some yummy pastries!

Though there were definitely many different global cuisines available inside the market, conditions in many of the restaurants/eateries seemed a bit "unsanitary" to us. The food we did purchase tasted a bit old and like it had spent a little too much time in the display case. I honestly wouldn't recommend it to friends passing through.

Thank Beth A
