Dozens of stalls in this 50,000-square-foot building sell locally grown fruits and vegetables direct from the farm and other produce from farther afield; others stock crafts, chocolates, artisan cheeses and pastas, fish, meat, flowers, and exotic foods. On Thursdays in summer, farmers sell fruit and vegetables from trucks outside. At the north end of the market, you can pick up a snack, lunch, or coffee from one of the many prepared-food vendors. The Market Courtyard,
on the waterside, not only offers some great shots of the city from a different perspective, but it's a good place to catch street entertainers—be prepared to get roped into the action, if only to check the padlocks of an escape artist's gear. Weekends can get madly busy.
