A visit to the North Market is a fun way to start a Saturday. The historic market routinely has special events for kids and there's always coffee for adults.

The open-air farmer's market located outside of the building brims with locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Often, there are fresh flowers, eggs and herbs, as well.

After you've shopped outside, be sure and head indoors to sample chips and salsa, ogle the beautiful fish and have an ice-cream cone.
