Parking is an absolute nightmare. No street artists and open air play that engages visitors. Just don't.

I'm not sure what some of the previous reviewers expected, it is a market catering for locals with a few surprises. Let's start with the surprises, Rainbow Organic Chocolates, a sole trader producing wonderful hand-made chocolates. Real Patisserie, a branch of a local chain that...More

We went with lot of hopes to get some local market feel and stuff, but we were disappointed. Very few shops were there and got nothing which was worth it.

I walked through the market on Sunday morning only a few vendors were there. This place was a disappointment.

Loved what was open in the market. A lot of healthy food options and a few arts, crafts and book stalls. I only wish that more of the stalls were open. What is there is great.

Having shopped there as a young kid, all I can say is how times have changed. I go north and find amazingly vibrant food and arts markets; people genuinely want to shop in them, including me. Not so here.
