We visited the market in April and when the weather had just turned colder. The variety of hot food available was a huge welcome. This market has one of the best range of items on sale, from second hands, to collectibles like stamps, to handicrafts....More

A nice way to spend a Sunday morning. Better in the summertime, seem to be more stalls. Usually a good bargain to be found.
