Grand Central Market reviews
Lots of options. Fun time browsing and selecting what to eat. My son said his burger was one of the best he’s had recently. My meal wasn’t That great. You’ll have a hard time finding much below $15...

Great place to visit, hustling and bustling. So many food choices to spoil yourselves with at reasonable prices. Good for couples, families and friends who maybe have different food preferences as...

This place is always a great stop whether you are a visiting tourist or local. I love having all of the food options. Tonight there was live music which boosted the overall Friday night vibes. There is a parking garage attached which helps for convenient parking. Not much to complain about this market. You can go many times without eating the same thing. Highly recommend.
There was the perfect selection of food, and the atmosphere was one that encouraged exploration, discovery, and friendly conversation. The variety of cuisines was overwhelming, with something to please everyone from vegan to omnivores. Many of the vendors' stands featured local, organic, and handmade ingredients, which was wonderful to see. The layout was easy to navigate and could be conquered in an afternoon, but you definitely need to factor in extra time if you want to sample from more than one vendor. There were frequent live music performances and impromptu tango dancing which added life to the atmosphere. Grand Central Market was definitely worth the trip - I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a genuine and cultural culinary experience.
An indoor mall of great street food! An excellent place to visit if the goal is to try different food and beverage varieties across cuisines. Many shops were closed even though google hours indicated they were open, so the best bet would be to visit during morning hours or close to lunch. Some seating is available for those who wish to eat there, taking in the busy street food ambience! Best suited for groups with varying culinary preferences, won’t need to make multiple stops!
I had the lobster roll from Broad Street Oyster Co. It was a bit expensive for what it was but also very very tasty!. It was packed with tender lobster. I loved it. They also had good fries and I appreciated the Malt Vinegar offering. I gave the Market 4 stars because hardly any vendors were open when we got there at a little before 8pm on a Wednesday. Its kind of inconvenient to check each vendors hours before you visit a market like that.
Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner/ Snack’s, Grand Central Market have it all! Always a good vibe and quite crowded. Do expect a line to most of the places especially after 12PM. Preparing yourself to be a bit patient before getting your goods and you will be well rewarded. All the food is tasty and fresh. A perfect spot to meet up with friends, family, have a first meeting with a potential someone or just for a self care day all to yourself!
