  • NO ENTRY FEE! Yes, you heard me! Unlike other markets that require a gold coin entry fee, this market doesn't. This market is HUGE! I believe it has over 400+ stalls. It took my cousin and I a couple of hours to walk everything. This is your typical market; it has anything that you can think of. Most of the stalls were selling the same type of things. We didn't find anything that we liked much; it was a lot of old junk. There are small cafes located in the market. So if you're hungry from shopping, you can grab a quick bite to eat! Also, there's a mini golf course.
  • This certainly is a big market. But we were quite disappointed with the products. The plants and fruit and veg were good. The coffee and snacks were nice. But the shortage of locally made good items was the real downer. There were a few stalls here and there, but the bulk of it was cheap overseas things.
  • 5 star fruit and veg at Fruitopian Delight. Acid free pineapples are to die for. Heaps of stuff straight from the farm. Prices are beyond belief. I now come here every week for my produce. I can feed the family for half the price of the supermarket stuff and it lasts twice as long...no more mouldy strawberries!!!!
  • Great place I've been visiting here for the last 10 years and love Barbie Cawthan's "Crystal and Pearl Co shop" Beautiful crystal or pearl jewellery 🌟
  • Didnt like it so much. All seems to be fake copies or brands. The food was good though
