This is such a cute market!! They have a great variety of vendors to look at. Your such to find a treat for yourself or a loved one. One of our favorite vendors was a meat vendor right as you walk in to your right! They also had an awesome little stand with fresh jellies and jams! So much to check out and see.

If you like your herbs, spices etc. to be of the finest quality and from a large selection, you must go to The Herb Shop in the Central Market. While the overall market is just OK this establishment is way above it's peers, priced about the same or better than what you find in jars at the supermarket, the selection is incredible.

It is a fairly small covered market, just around 5-6 rows of shops/stalls, selling a variety of food and some artifacts. The food ranges from fresh produce to cured meats and cheeses. There are a few shops selling quick eats and a limited …

The stalls selling fresh fish and meat looked like they had good offerings (no kitchen where we were staying so sadly couldn't try any). Various fresh fruit and vegetable stalls. We were able to get some tasty cherries from one of them.

I love Central Market, but the prices at many stands are outrageous! I only hit my usual stands because of prices. 19.89 per lb for strip steak? Not happening!

Lots of fresh food. By noon, many bakery items are sold out and some of the smaller produce stands are pretty lean. I question the authenticity of some of the Amish and homemade goods. The market itself is pretty small and the wait to get in (due to social distancing) can probably be reduced by going at off hours.

Whether you're a tourist or a local, the market has something for everyone. Get there early on Saturdays - it gets busy! I do 98% of my grocery shopping here and I almost never get the same thing twice. There's a huge variety of vendors and I love that they have gluten free and vegan options too.

Though it's getting a bit trendy these days it's still a great place to pick up not only good produce and meats but lots of unique prepared foods. Also plenty of great shops in the surrounding blocks worth checking out.

Very conscientious of the corona virus. Mask are required and a greeter at the door enforces that they are worn and cover nose and mouth. Important because of the close quartered and poorly ventilated space. The market is as thriving as ever. I highly suggest making the trip to one of our cities best treasures.

If you can manage the in-town traffic and parking...this is definitely worth the stop. So many great local foods and crafts. They definitely get busy. So if you have a favorite, you'll want to get here early.

Real interesting building. There were lots of vendors selling different things. It was a bit crowded in certain places. I would suggest to bring a reusable shopping bag to hold all your purchases.

Nice place, everyone was friendly & helpful. Kinda expensive. Got some pickles bread & butter yum, half sour didn't like at all (there goes $10 down the drain) The deli that is right there was good a little pricey. I would go again definitely.
