If you like crafts, this is the spot. Many original ideas to enhance your home or entertaining. There's 2 hour parking, but few spaces. It's probably best not to go during peak hours, or to just get dropped off for a while. We ate delicious...More

This is one of the country's oldest markets, and people here are justifiably proud of it. I especially like the bakery, which offers wonderful, old-world bread varieties that are great, and the coffee brewer that roasts his beans on site. When the fresh produce arrives,...More

Large variety of in-season veggies & fruits! Lots of home made jams, jellies, honey, crafts. It had indoor bakeries, wines, homemade chocolates! Anything you could think to be at a farmer's market, you'll find here. Fun place to visit!

It is about a 1-1/2 mile walk to city market from the Kemper Street Station. You can catch a bus or cab if the walk is too long. As far as places to eat, there are plenty - either small places in the market or others nearby... More

The Community Market is open Tues-Sat. 7 am to 2 pm. That said, not all of the vendors are available all the time. Some only seem to be there on Saturdays, the artisans, in particular. The food vendors are there, however. It... More
