Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. If you park in the parking structure next door, and make a purchase, you can get 90 minutes of validated parking. We got lattes at Not Just Coffee, a breakfast crepe, fresh organic juices, garlic knots, and acai with granola and fresh fruit at all the different stores located in the market. Delicious and fresh/healthy options, but be prepared to spend a little more money. Fresh organic food is normally more pricey but it's worth it. I really like the concept of having so many different stores in one place.
Absolutely amazing cheese shop; great crepe place; I'd never had a sushi burrito but we took someone's advice and got it & it was delicious. This isn't a huge market but the shops that are there all have great things. There are several community tables in the center so you can talk to people easily - it might be hard if you're in a large group and want to sit together through. We've only gone on weekends and it gets crowded. There's seating outside (live music last time we were there) where you can find a little more room.
Had The Maple Dream crepes at Hazelnuts. They were awesome! The coffee was ok. Neat place overall with any type of food you could want. Asian fusion, pastries, sandwiches, breakfast, and smoothies, just to name what I saw. Forgot to take a pic of my crepes!
All the convenience of a metropolitan City with all the charm of a small-town feel. Gourmet food court with a cute little Italian Market in the back. Great place for corporate business meetings as well as family gatherings. Conveniently located across from Scenic park with multiple water features for children to cool off on a hot day.
Great little shops. The hazelnuts creperie had fantastic crepes. The desserts there were yummy and I want to go back to try the grilled cheese place. Just don't use their parking lot. Not cheap, even on the weekend.
