Guess you will have to look for events. Otherwise it's just another city block. There are restaurants around it and appears to be set up for events but will be small to hold too many people.

I believe that the German market that you are reference is 'Findlay Market' which is on the northwest side of downtown. I think that it is only open during daytime hours. It is better and livelier during warmer months
