101 South: San Jose, San Pedro Square


San Pedro Square  Between Santa Clara & Saint John streets, downtown.  The name of this historic strip is misleading because it's not really a square, but rather a one-block stretch, and it extends even beyond this center to restaurants, shops, and other businesses surrounding it.  A farmers market operates on Friday from 10 am to 2 pm.

The San Pedro Square Market takes up a big chunk of space here.  A variety of informal restaurant spaces operate inside this food court offering everything from sushi tacos to dragon rolls to hand-thrown pizza.  Seating is scattered throughout, both indoors and out (one area is beside the adjacent Peralta Adobe, which is available to tour by appointment).  Live music is presented on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings beginning at 7 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 p.m.
