    This is one of the BEST places to buy spices, grains, fresh fruits, veggies & fish! We luv the salmon & sea bass. Best time to shop is weekday mornings, small crowds & fresh food!

    Veggie galore! Seafood? Oh yes! Love the granola in the bag. It is a must-have! Don't forget to get your piece of cake or pie on your way out. Whew! What else is there to say? Love it all!

    Great fish market. Come at the right time, beat the rush, & get your pick (still wriggling!) During busy hours they get sloppy; it's better to skip the pick-your-# line & clean the fish yourself.

    Last, they have the longest fresh fish counter I've ever seen: longer than the Ramlas in Barcelona, longer than the Fulton St. market (stalls, not one counter), longer than the wharf in SF!

    A magical place. The produce, meat, fish, and bakery selections are incredible, and for the most part, quite well priced. Can be a madhouse though, be prepared.

    Go for organic. A lot of times the regular versus organic isn't marked for the checker, so you often get charged the price for regular. Plus their meats and seafood is really fresh!

    Pro Tip: To maximize your ability to get around on crowded days (esp. in the produce), park your cart and walk around and collect things, then walk back and out put them in your cart. Saves bother!
