1. The place looks like one of the farmer’s markets in my mother’s hometown in Mexico. Even the people working and shopping here seemed authentic.
2. It had a wide variety of restaurants and the prices were reasonable. Abe and I had lunch here for under $10. (I bought a lunch box with tempura shrimp and vegetables, rice and a side salad for $5. Abe bought a 6 piece order of sushi for $3.75). And not to mention the food was really good!
3. Their produce prices were impressive. I work at a grocery store so I can compare produce prices easily. For example, a box of blueberries cost $1 where I work and here you can buy 3 boxes for one dollar. Talk about making your dollar go way further.
4. I loved that this place has been around since 1917. They have a few black and white pictures of the market hanging from one of the walls. It’s interesting to see how many people came here then and still come here today.
I hope all of you are having a great week. <3
