Described by one Yelp reviewer as “a museum of Italian American heritage in Orange that also serves food,” John’s Market is an Orange Institution. Three generations of Orange residents have turned to John’s for delicious food and good company. Come for lunch on Thursday, and enjoy performances based on the culturally rich stories of John’s devoted patrons.
