  • A smallish building but a Pandora's box of little 'stalls' all selling excellent foodstuff. I visited with my 2 daughters just to look around but we just couldn't resist buying from 4 of the stalls.  more »

  • I could take or leave this place to be honest. The building is really lovely, I like the concept, but it just doesn’t live up to expectations. Butcher fine, fishmonger fine, would like to see more baked goods, fresh bread, more veg variety and longer opening times- perhaps I’ve just got there too late in the day each time, but even between Christmas and new year there didn’t seem to be much on offer. The restaurant was closing mid afternoon and the cocktail place was completely closed for Christmas- which I would’ve thought would be one of the busiest times.
  • Cute old building and lovely decor. We had coffee at the restaurant which was good and bought some delicious steak from the butcher! They were so tender when we cooked at home! Lots of variety of fresh local produce! Would definitely go back for breakfast or lunch as looked delicious!
  • Beautiful farmers market with lots of options. There are several stands such as seafood, cheese, meats and vegetables amongst the prepared food and sit down restaurant style options. The only down side is that it is pretty expensive but I suppose that's to be expected.
  • Always excellent food. Different every time you go. Lovely quirky decor. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Love the 1920's champagne glasses. The homemade bread amazing. Highly recommended!
  • This is a very quirky place that offers allot of local produce you can eat here as well. It's like a market and three restaurants made a baby. Very cool place. Especially love the Italian bakery.
