By combining artisanal foods with cool communal spaces, these European-style markets offer a better way to eat and shop.

The Anaheim Packing House, Anaheim, CA

1 of 16

Inspired by public markets in South America and Europe, this food hall in a former fruit-packing facility recalls the era when Orange County was primarily an agricultural area—with more citrus trees and fewer highways and strip malls. The Mission-style building has been remade as a two-story public market with 20 small vendors. Standouts include Popbar, a gelato and sorbetto-on-a-stick maker with flavors like pistachio and blood orange; Adya, an Indian café that serves buttery naan bread and kebabs; and comfort food restaurant Kroft, specializing in poutine, French fries topped with cheese curds and homemade gravy. A farmers’ market sets up shop in the two-acre park out front each Sunday.

Lunch Pick: A house-made porchetta sandwich with chermoula, pickled radish, and watercress from butcher and rotisserie Wheat & Sons.
