Historic Eastern Market has been in continuous operation since 1873. Today Eastern Market’s restored South Hall is a bustling bazaar, where area farmers, greengrocers, bakers, butchers, and others sell their wares Tuesday through Sunday, joined by a second line of farmers outside on Tuesdays 1 to 7pm; on the weekend, 100 or so local artisans hawk jewelry, paintings, pottery, woodwork, and other handmade items on the outdoor plazas and streets surrounding the market. Best of all is the Saturday morning ritual of breakfasting on blueberry pancakes at the Market Lunch counter. The indoor market is open Tuesday to Friday 7am to 7pm, Saturday 7am to 6pm, and Sunday 9am to 5pm.
