It's a nice spot to hang out - it's a square with a lot of establishments around it. Fountain changes colors so you might want to visit at night. Nice place to walk around and maybe drink something

We visited for the first time and loved all the Fountain Square had to offer. We had dinner and drinks at Rock Bottom, which was great. We enjoyed people watching while we waited for a table at an outside patio.

Go to the fountain and take a picture or two. Changes colors and is nice in the evening. Wish the weather was nicer and bands would have been playing, I’m sure it would be a fun hangout.

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
