But if you're new to the area-- or haven't been to the market-- and you want to know what all the buzz is about, here are seven things you must try at the Broadway Market.

Horseradish

Let's start out with some horseradish. What's horseradish you ask? It's a root vegetable used as a spice. Famous Horseradish has been making this condiment at the market all year 'round for more than 30 years. Be careful! Too much can make your eyes water. If super hot is not your style, try the milder version that's made with beats. While here, you can also pick up Famous Horseradish's homemade mustard and cocktail sauce!
