On the ground floor of the Homer Laughlin Building at South Broadway, the Grand Central Market's global merchants and hipster food purveyors sell house-smoked lox, freshly-fried falafels, tamarind candy, and everything in between. Opened in 1917, this is the city's largest and oldest open-air market, and it continues to attract travelers and residents of nearby Bunker Hill to its sawdust floors and labyrinth of booths (most vendors are cash-only). Enjoy a casual lunch in the Market Court or create a unique meal with food from different vendors, such as Sarita's Salvadoran pupusas (thick tortillas with fillings such as cheese, beans, and meat), Mexican cocteles from La Tostaderia, and pastries from Valerie.
