  • Good food, fresh! The steak sandwich is a must and then walk across the court and pick up a bag of fresh fried chips for 3 euros. The toasties at Mary's are amazing. Choice of 90 cheeses on a baguette with a sun dried tomato and garlic spread. Perfect match! The guitarist was very good too!
  • Awesome spot on a Saturday morning. Great for some fancy lunch bits (olives, bread, cheese) and great around Christmas for presents. Theres a sit down area upstairs where you can look over the whole market.
  • Fabulous vibrant market and as it was a sunny day when I visited it felt as if I was in the South of France. There are a great collection of stalls and produce and some great food spots within the bustling market.
  • Lovely spot to spend Saturday morning wandering around, really great around Christmas for handmade gifts too. Lovely seating area upstairs to look out while you have a coffee. Recommend the baklava stand and the stand belonging to the French man who sells pate, cheese, olives, etc. Arrive early to avoid crowds!
  • An absolutely wonderful experience. Would highly recommend. Delicious food♥️
