yes, all the flower vendors set up there. my sister and i would go and buy all our plants there and drag them home to our 19th floor balcony garden!

there are 2 specialty cheese shops, delis from Hungary, Italy, and Poland, 3 permanent fruit and vegetable markets in addition to the local farmers who are in situ from May through October (and some of them sell xmas trees and wreaths at the outdoor stalls in December!), several bakeries (including Le Moulin de Provence where President Obama shopped on his whirlwind visit to the city after his election), 2 butchers, specialty tea shops, and restaurants to meet almost every food craving you've ever had!!!!

(yes, i obviously miss the place - a LOT!!!)
