Anchored by nine barbecue grills serving pulled pork, artichokes, and everything in between, the market has more than 80 stalls and food carts in peak season. A cellist and a rotating lineup of bands play here regularly. There’s even a juggler on a unicycle. And if you don’t want to circle for parking, take advantage of the bike valet.
