We went with lot of hopes to get some local market feel and stuff, but we were disappointed. Very few shops were there and got nothing which was worth it.

I walked through the market on Sunday morning only a few vendors were there. This place was a disappointment.

Loved what was open in the market. A lot of healthy food options and a few arts, crafts and book stalls. I only wish that more of the stalls were open. What is there is great.

Having shopped there as a young kid, all I can say is how times have changed. I go north and find amazingly vibrant food and arts markets; people genuinely want to shop in them, including me. Not so here.

This market was smaller than expected, and quiet on Saturday afternoon. Although the shops and stalls were nice enough, it was not worth visiting unless nearby. Also, though local maps say there are toilets there, we couldn’t find any! If they are there, they need...More

This venue is like a ghost town. Where have all the old-style stalls gone - the real market, with reasonably priced quality stock. There is no diversity, no atmosphere, it is no longer an 'open' market in any sense of the word. I feel sorry...More
