We went there for a late 2pm lunch on a Friday. It was very loud and busy when we called at noon to find out how crowded it was. It was packed according to the man who answered the phone. When we arrived, it was nearly empty. We opted for outdoor seating. Nice patio area (they should paint the doors),... More

Downtown Market is, hands down, the best lunch spot in Medford. You'll know this when you show up, since the place will be full and there's often a (short) wait for a table. Excellent gourmet food with a menu that changes each week, and excellent staff. Be sure to heckle the cook (and owner), Brian. He can dish it out... More

I had lunch at Downtown Market on a Sunday. I was given the breakfast menu and told that two of the three items were unavailable. I had the sausage with polenta. It was pretty good, but the sausage patty was about the size of a silver dollar. I ordered iced tea which was never delivered. The service was very poor.... More

Unexpected treat because of a delay - delicious - fresh lunch. Have been here many times & always find something new & interesting on menu. Today enjoyed veggie/pesto soup with crunchy celery/date salad. Menu changes weekly, so get on their email list so you don't miss a Yummy meal.

This is a very small and unique restaurant with delicious fresh food and great service. The menu is limited, but the choices were varied and pleased both my husband and myself. We will return!

Recently we went here for lunch for the first time. We explained to the chef with the soul patch that we were being joined by our daughter who had a doctors appointment and couldn't be late so we'd order for her. He curtly explained all parties must be present before seating, but he seated us letting us know he was... More

I've been eating here for years. Sometimes slow service (ask for your check with your meal), and the noise level (especially the staff almost yelling at each other) it's got amazing, imaginative offerings and some of the menu changes weekly. The soups I've had were all particularly nice. It's gourmet all the way! Also cooking classes. The charming market that's... More

The wife and I have lunch here every time we get a chance... and that is a LOT! We like to eat at the counter where we can banter with the cooks and enjoy the classic rock music they always have on. The food is ALWAYS delicious and fresh. The place is intimate and small which helps keep the quality... More

This place had good food but I was shocked when they wouldn't seat us because one of our party was not there. Even though we assured them that whether or not the other person showed up we were still eating. I thought they were very rude. In fact I have never been treated that badly in a restaurant before.

Nora-Brian, Owner at Downtown Market Company, responded to this review

With so many dining options, we'd like to thank you for choosing the Market for your lunch. No one dislikes rules more than us, but due to our single restroom we are limited to 15 seats. We do our very best to manage the lunch hour madness and full party seating has turned out to be the best way to... More
