Reminded me of Europe's weekend markets, great products and quality service. Prices are high but it's expected in local small markets. Kids loved the frozen iced cream and the amazing kettle popcorn. One of the best local fruits I have tasted in the island.

Packed with diverse and interesting foods, local produce, local fruit, local poultry, plants and whatever you can think of! Dozens of artistic vendors, canned jams, jellies, sauces, soup mixes, and spices. Pretty sure it is worth going every Sunday. We just moved into the neighbourhood...More

My first time to this Sunday market left me wanting to return often! A talented musician helped to set a festive yet casual tone. Vendors were plentiful and helpful. Everyone was in a good mood and the quality of goods and produce was excellent.

At the market absolutely! It is family, dog friendly with music and good some food available as well. At the Crow & Gate pub(on the same grounds and is wonderful) I don't think so.
