Went to the market in the morning at 10.30 nothing there, went later at 15.00 hut's up and a stage nothing open though. Had something to eat at a restaurant in the square which was nice. Otherwise a waste of time.

Although the Town Hall was under restoration, the Market Place was still worth a visit. A combination of old and new, shops and restaurants, lots going on
