  • Lovely atmosphere here. Lots of activities for children. Variety of foods and drink. The clothes and other goods stalls are also good. You can buy fresh produce here as well. They also have live music and lovely spots to sit outside.
  • Go hungry, lots of great food. A good selection of quality goods on sale here, not your typical flea market rubbish. With the addition of the of the "design tent" and the added covered seating area outside, it is the ideal place for the whole family.
  • A must visit! For tourists definitely Saturday’s & Sunday’s only Awesome place to go to. We didn’t manage to spend too long there as we got there late But we quickly looked at all the stalls ate some of the food from their stalls and it was very good! Decent priced, great atmosphere
  • Perfect lunch spot when on a wine tasting mission. Basically a whole lot of food trucks all concentrated in one place. There is so much choice of yummy food that one can come back again and again and always have something new.
  • Excellent! What struck me was that the store owners did not pounce on you if you showed an interest in their wares. They gave you space to look but were available to assist when needed. The food stalls were amazing.. the variety & quality was outstanding!
