Il abrite un marché fermier local et de nombreux stands d’artisanat ainsi que plus de 600 commerces. Les vendeurs et marchands canadiens-français et juifs ont représenté deux des cultures dominantes pendant de nombreuses décennies. Des hôtels, des tavernes et des pensions se sont aussi installés dans les rues autour du marché.
