(The 2nd largest food hub in the US) - Farmers Market Every Saturday. Starts real early, ends at about 3pm. Tuesday Farmers Market (only Spring-Fall)
Great experience even if you don't buy anything! Lots of local options from coffee and honey to veggies and baked goods. The best day to go is Saturday to experience the full market, but sometimes there is a Tuesday market. The surrounding stores are open regular hours.
