  • The Union Market is an enclosed market with dozens of vendors offering fresh foods, prepared foods (lots of small restaurants), and beverages. It's a busy, fun place with a wide variety of options. We...  more »
  • There were so many food options here. I couldn't decide so I ate two dinners. Takorean Grill and FishWife. Both were amazing and I highly reccomend all of these places.  more »

  • We did the sampler. Everyone in group went to different places for the signature dishes. We all met back at table and had a great time tasting, talking, and laughing. The place is busy but welcoming. The competition for business is what makes all the store fronts step it up. Great place to go if no one can decide on what the want because they have it all. You can find a new favorite thing to eat . Fun
  • A great place to visit. Coming from Houston, it's cool to see all these vendors from all over the world. Definitely worth checking out on your own or with a group, it's a great place to be. With so many places and variety, everyone should be able to get something and be happy with it. It's like going to the food court mall but fancier.
  • There are a lot of different vendors and not all of them are always there. They rotate so every time you go could be different. You can pick up wine at the wine store, locally sourced seafood at the counter, any variety of ready to eat food you can think of, or just sit and have some drinks at one of the bars. There are frequently expositions and events in the back warehouses so follow along on the website. The outdoor seating is a nice boon for the summer but there isn't enough seating inside to accommodate the popularity of the place.
  • I simultaneously love and hate this place. I love the fact that you can always find something to eat here from across the spectrum, the vendors are always great. Best bet/Pro tip, don't go on the weekend, major holidays, or during lunch. I've found the best times are first thing in the morning or closer to midday (1:30-3 pm) during the week. This place just can be really, really, REALLY annoying and obnoxious when it is busy, especially if you hate large crowds of people who have no awareness of personal space. The property owner could also do so much more to beautify/green the property but hasn't done so yet.
  • Really great spot especially in the summer when you can enjoy the outdoors. Really cool location amongst warehouses and newer converted storefronts. Fairly easy access from metro. Lots of options for food and drink, so everyone in your group will find something they like.
