The market is located at the cross-street of El Camino Real and O’Neill Avenue at the entrance to the Belmont Caltrain station. Part of the parking lot hosts the food stands and the rest is for cars to park.

The pictures for this review were taken in the summer time. The market has plentiful organic and non-organic fresh fruits and vegetables. Bitter melon is one of the fruits highlighted at the market when it is in season. This is a very bitter fruit widely grown in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean which is generally consumed cooked in the green or early yellowing stage. This fruit contains many biologically active substances, some of which were shown to have cardioprotective and hypoglycemic effects in animal models and can act as appetite suppressants.
