  • Hard to find a good wine selection here which is surprising because of Root 44's location being surrounded with very good wine farms. No vegan options at the food section, which was very disappointing. I'd love to see more options in the future. The vibe outside as very nice, lots of pets and good music playing.
  • Fantastic place to spend a day. Tons of amazing food, too much to try all on one day so it's very rewarding coming multiple times. The stalls are all very interesting and there's something for everyone, from funny to classy and from furniture to small accessories. There's live entertainment and huge play areas for the kids to enjoy. It's really easy to spend the whole day just having fun for all ages and shopping for things that you never knew you needed out wanted at affordable prices. Lots of very unique ideas too. Absolutely wonderful place to visit again and again.
  • Really enjoyed this market. Eclectic mix of craft food and drinks. Great vibe, live music and amazing weather I will definitely go back!
  • Fine wining and dining to your heart's content. Craft beers, great pizza, and enough innovative art and creations to keep your creative juices flowing. Fancy as F.
  • Nice small markets with clothing, household items, pet accessories, etc. Also a nice furniture section with custom made furniture. And then the mass of food stalls, coffee stalls and craft beer stands. Very nice
