    Nice place to walk around, buy some stuff and eat some food. In a great neighborhood so you can continue exploring outside the market too.

    There are plenty of food vendors here. It doesn't have as many food vendors as other well-known food fairs/food gatherings but that means that it isn't as crowded :). I love the Eggettes vendor!

    Even better than Smorgasburg. You can get smaller portions at some places so it's easier to try more stuff. And they have beer.
