  • Good food variety, many interesting stalls and shops, live entertainment. Well worth a look on a Saturday morning
  • Family friendly market, with AMAZING food. Check out the local handicraft stalls, hidden treasures all throughout.
  • Great food options. Good range of shopping. A MUST for Saturday breakfast/lunch. Limited seating.
  • Interesting variety of goods for the ladies, nothing fir the guys. There may be good food if you are in the know but we chose the worst Asian food I've ever eaten.
  • Fun Saturday morning thing to do. Awesome food and shopping. Lots of delicious produce for sale.
