Cincinnati has a really good market. It's one of the oldest continuously running markets in the country.

The Pike Place market in Seattle is open 7 days a week, and is the oldest continually operating market in the country (celebrating 100 years this year). It is a major tourist attraction, but still maintains it's function as a vital market that serves local's produce needs. It's also the home to the original Starbucks. A few pictures (taken by Pwright):

Chicago has the best farmer's market that I've seen. There are quite a few and they are 'natural' in that a ton of yuppies didn't say "Wow, we should have a farmer's market, that would be soooooo cute!" No, ours were in existence from the old slaughterhouse days and long before even that. They're such a natural function of our city.

I just did my annual autumn shopping spree. Cabinets of the most delicious honey on the planet, honeycomb, lots of fresh produce, various things in jars and stoppers... Yum

The Reading Terminal Market is pretty cool. One of the most historic in the country, located in Center City Philadelphia:

Seattle, hands down. I never knew a farmer's market could be so entertaining.

Boise has one of the largest in the Western US and supposedly the largest organic farmers market selection in the Northwest at our market each Saturday morning right in the center of downtown.
It is a great time, local art exhibits, local organic produce, local wine tasting booths, fit & happy people, bikes everywhere, music, dance, street performers.

St. Louis had an excellent farmer's market at one time called Soulard...was among the best the Midwest had to offer. Now there is apparantly a sign you'll find along I-55 just south of downtown that says it's historic...i don't even know myself if it's still active but would imagine it is.
