My wife and I hadn't been to Scarab for several years andw ere astounded by the size it is now! There are loads of original and one-of-a-kind items which you can get no-where else, as well as some "routine" craft "resellers". The original work particularly metal artwork was spectacular.

Lots of little stalls, craft beer tasting, eats and drinks. Well worth a trip. The Farmers market is just next to it, so plan to spend some time wandering around! Going back for some more!!

This is a good Saturday morning experience for the entire family. There is the Wild Oats Farmers market next door which is also a nice place to visit, to buy or eat some yummy food. The Scarab market is good for crafts.
