  • It's pretty average to be honest. The willows markets are way better for food and produce. They cut off a huge part of the city to hold this but it's really not worth it. Better ways to spend a Sunday morning
  • There was a good variety of fresh produce, and stalls with clothes, candles, Aboriginal Art, jewellery etc. I personally found a lot of the things I looked at a bit on the over priced side. A few of the stall owners could have done with a good course in customer service skills. Pleasant morning but a bit drab in many ways.
  • Get in early for fresh produce and to beat the crowd. Plenty of dining options along the street but the same thing every weekend does make the markets lose its appeal. Good to support the local economy.
  • Held on a Sunday in middle of Townsv√≠lle, very quiet Sunday on day we went and a lot of stallholders not there.
  • warm,friendly atmosphere with a range of activists tackling environmental, economic & social concerns
