For those hectic days when cooking isn't an option, try these fast favorites.
crepes de luxe
While the Parisian-style street food comes in plenty of sweet flavors, we especially love the savory Montreal ($6), smoked brisket and Emmental cheese wrapped in a paper-thin pancake that's griddled up right in front of us. crepesdeluxe.com
Frickaccio's pizza market
This pizza stand has been serving Italian food at the market for 30 years. The 11-inch pepperoni pizza ($7) is made with fresh mozzarella and massive pepperoni slices. Each pie is made fresh, so place an order, grab a few items and dig in. frickaccios.com
Get in line early before the lunch rush hits for this gyro ($8 regular, $10 large). Folks sometimes wait up to an hour for this pita piled high with juicy lamb sliced from a rotating spit, doused in a tzatziki sauce and loaded with lettuce, tomatoes and onions.
One of its two stands, this corner spot sells cooked brats to go. Order the bratwurst sandwich ($3.50) for a German-style treat that is both inexpensive and filling. Ask for the generous helping of sauerkraut, a dash of horseradish and a touch of mustard. franksbratwurst.com
Order the falafel with hummus and tabouli wrap (regular $5.25, jumbo $5.95) at this stand tucked at the back of market. You'll find a Middle Eastern replacement for your Chipotle habit and get a taste of what wowed Rachel Ray on $40 a Day.
