  • Cool place but bad city. Won't be going again. Dirty, trashy city- not safe after dark. We prefer Seaside and the coast to I-5 corridor.

  • This outdoor market is huge! Many different vendors selling trinkets, art, home decor, clothing, etc. There are also a few food stands throughout the area. I would suggest bringing cash but most vendors take card/Venmo as well.
  • Good variety of booths, parking nearby. The sewer smell by the food carts was a bit much. The drum circle was by far my favorite part!
  • This was an enjoyable Saturday afternoon with family. We walked around and sat all the booths, but didn't find much to buy. Most things were hand made and pricy, but we came to have something to do. There was music and a variety of foods and drinks. The water play area was being enjoyed by the kids. We saw a wide variety of people as we people watched. It would have been nice if they had some picnicking areas where you could sit and eat on the south lawn. We feel like we can recommend this place.
  • This place was huge! It was our first time here and couldn’t have been more impressed. Beautifully set up with tons of vendors. Due to covid there wasn’t as many vendors as usual but I still found so many unique pieces of handmade art. It was pretty crowded. Definitely try the pupusas and elote, it was delicious.
  • Amazing selection of food, arts, crafts, and so much more! Highly recommended that you check this and the Farmer's Market out on Saturdays. Wonderful pictures and art from local artists that are higher quality than anything you would find online. There's something for pretty much everyone at the Saturday market!
