Best Taste of the Old Downtown (1917) (2010)

Grand Central Market

Ride the Angels Flight Railway 298 feet over the steep slope between Hill and Olive streets for 25 cents a turn while consuming a giant mango-beet-cauliflower juice from Tropical Zone and a Jose Chiquito taco the size of two burritos from Grand Central Market. The total expenditure for such an adventure comes to about $5. At the market, people on tight budgets find produce, nuts, liquor, meat, fish, fresh bread, spices, organic soap and a Chinese massage — all in one stop. Jones Grain Mill offers an abundance of organic remedies and care products, and many unusual powders and roots in unmarked jars. Sarita's Pupuseria boasts some of the best overstuffed pupusas in town. Established in 1917, the Market sits at the bottom of the Homer Laughlin Building at the center of downtown's Historic Core. 317 S. Broadway between 3rd and 4th streets, dwntwn.
