Having read the mixed reviews of the market, I meandered along about 11.30 as it isn't far from my hotel and was also near a bakery I wanted to visit. Very pleasantly surprised. Yes there's stalls of Chinese tat and local secondhand items which may...More

It's ok, bit like any British weekend outdoor market, loads of cheap tat. Food area was good, got to try some cake and biccies and bought some chocs and sweets. Really nothing special at all, but worth half hour of your time.

As others have said, it's an interesting market just to wander through. Mostly second hand stuff, but there are a few vendors selling new items. We actually bought a nice bracelet from an artisan that had a booth there. They have a small food area...More

There is a modest food market at the back where you can get a variety of seafood. But this is only when the market is open which is on the weekends.

Quite a lot of vendors take card, and for those that do not, an ATM is provided next to the exit so cash is easily accessible.
