I enjoyed my time at this market. It’s not an upscale, hipster, pretentious market, but more of a large local neighborhood market. There are food trucks/stands, fresh produce, art and craft tables, and a lot of “garage sale” type tables. And the toilets there are...More

Nice little trip out of the city centre, but primarily just a massive garage sale. Everything people dont want on sale with a few booths with actual packaged products. But lovely vibe wandering around with live music playing and heaps of food to choose from...More

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.

Yes, it is winter, was cold and light rain...but very disappointing. Only a small handful of stalls open. Much better in summer.
