  • Markets do not really interest me.
  • I have grown up with these markets & have watched them grow & change. Such a great weekend visit! Love the fresh flowers, fresh food & veg available & the food stalls are amazing!!! My eyes are ALWAYS bigger than my stomach. Get there & go hard! Try new foods, mingle! The art stalls are also worth a browse. Always a great answer to a long week or a hangover. Be sure to take cash, as it's not fully card friendly yet. It's hot n sunny during the wet, so wear cool clothing and a hat. Otherwise, just enjoy!!!
