The main attractions in this market are the small boutiques and artisanal shops scattered throughout. It's more like an arcade than a traditional covered market in that regard, and certainly worth wandering around to do some window shopping. Well placed in the centre but less...More

Great place to walk around, especially at Christmas time. Loved coming here as a child and still coming back with my own family. A good selection of independent shops, cafes and food stalls, butchers and florists.

This is a cool indoor market, containing many different restaurants, fresh fruit stores, flower shops, cake bakeries, etc. Nice place to check out stores indoors!

We went inside the Covered Market to escape a cold rain and found it to be a nice and atmospheric place that deserves a visit even if weather is perfect. It has a bit of everything for everyone, from “high class butchers” to souvenirs and...More
