Visited on Sunday , because almost everywhere seemed to be closed on Mondays. An interesting and eclectic mix of vinyl shops, book shops, places to eat and much more . Well worth a detour from the town centre.

Fargo Village is a great place for people who love art, quirky cafes, a used book store, a record store, vegan restaurants, etc. It has a cool, chill vibe to it. We had such a great time visiting and seeing all the sculptures and paintings.

OK, so this place is probably not aimed at my age group, late 40's, but it really seems to be trying just to hard to be cool. If you have to say you are cool, you ain't cool, seems to sum this up. There are...More

There are limited parking spaces on site but there is a very large free car park not far from FarGo. If you access their Facebook page or website address it does give further information on there.
