Being lovers of all things markets. The is quite upmarket, not be confused with a flea market in anyway. Many stalls with pretty things, great place to get something a little different, not really the place to get a bargain.

That said, there was a nice collection of locally designed and made jewellery, clothes etc. The weekend i went, they also had some fairtrade stalls for international week. Chatting to the stall owners made for interesting... More

Relatively easy to get here by bus (2.10) or taxi (13.50), an eclectic assortment of jewelry, artwork, clothing, and food carts. Only open on Saturdays.

Although not as diverse as we recalled from previous visits, this is still a great market to wander around and to find unusual hand-made items. It also has a good food section. It is also worth popping into the old Uniting Church to savour the peaceful atmosphere and admire the hand-hewn sandstone blocks.

Really love this market as it is full of local artists be it clothes, accessories, paintings and many more. Food stalls are separated from the rest. My only complaint is the scale of the market. It is simply not big enough.
