I didn't take any chances, although I always try, this time I passed. There are crafts and some things to buy. There are several types of beer on the top floor.
Great market with many food and drink options. Parking is usually pretty easy to find on the side streets and safety hasn't ever been a concern for me here. Food is not the only option as there are some nice boutique stores with many different products, especially upstairs.

Ample parking. Delicious food. Quenching cocktails. Good people. Great vibe.
