The market is small in comparison to others like this but it does have numerous vendors selling a variety of things. The market hours depends on what you are looking for. For example the specialty shops are open on Thursday from 7 to 4. The Farmers Market portion of the shop is open Friday from 7 to 4 and Saturday from 7 to 2.

Some vendors, like The Country Butcher Shop, A.E.S. Hearthplace and Dobbs Produce have their own stores but also have a stand here. There are two produce stands here, Dobbs and Joe’s, and I am amazed at their selection, quality and price. There is also The Java Junky that has brewed products for sale but also sells a variety of coffee and tea products. There are also several different food stands in the rear of the market with offerings from a Mennonite Sub shop to Vietnamese food.

I want to focus on the Vietnamese food served up by Quy Spring Roll. They make egg rolls in vegetarian or chicken/pork blend which are for sale fresh or frozen so you can take them home and heat them up. They also make a spring roll which is fantastic, not to mention they make their own peanut sauce for the spring rolls. They also have a lotus salad which has veggies, lotus root, shrimp and chicken. They sometimes have Pho on Saturday and I go every Saturday that I can to have a large bowl for brunch. I have tried Pho in numerous places but the broth here without adding anything to it is the best I have ever had. The only down side of how they serve it is they do not serve jalapeno peppers with theirs like many other places. If you are looking for ambiance this might not be the place to you, but if you want to eat great Vietnamese food and interact with the people how make it this is the place to stop. Quy Spring Roll has been at the market since 2003.

Wonderful warm welcoming experience. Great local fresh veggies and fruit. Candy and dried fruits and nuts, bird seed to name a few. Don't miss the local butcher shop. The sausage and roast I had were the best!
