  • The most amazing display of a huge variety of freshly caught fish. A great variety of fruit and vegetables and nuts. Exceptionally clean marketplace. Public toilets. Marketplace surrounded by bars and restaurants
  • Real markets! After so many UK markets full of tat and overpriced plastic, it's a joy to find real markets. The large twin buildings are a couple of hundred years old, but have been refurbished, and they are maintained to a high standard. They include clean modern toilets, too. And cash machines. One building houses the meat and fish market, the other, fruit and veg plus nuts and spices and other related bits and pieces. Plenty of choice, fair prices, and the area is surrounded by cafes once your shopping trolly is full.
  • Absolutely loved it. You get to meet local people who do not speak English at all and who drive down in their trucks loaded with the produce. I absolutely loved it, so did my wife. I got some fresh fish that I have grilled including ray fish and it was amazing! It is clean, tidy and reasonably priced, although fish can be a bit pricey. Vegetables are top quality and you can not even compare it to the shop ones! You'll love the Saturday market!
  • Nice market for fresh fish a vegetable lots of stalls selling honey and fresh fruits.. A gypsy market attached to one end. Nice place to walk around
  • Great place to shop for seafood and fresh produce. On Saturdays there are additional vendors outside and the entire place is buzzing with people shopping or sitting in the surrounding cafes. Not quite as authentic as 10-15yrs ago with the ever larger numbers of tourists visiting but still well worth the time. Parking can be tight on the weekend.
