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.

The market is not too bad’ however there is a pet place that is awful! Charged us £60 for some flea treatment which never worked! When confronted they said they were not interested and were very rude!

A renewed and central location off London Road Tuesdays mostly closed as with mostly nothing open on Sunday occasionally but when outlets and stalls are it’s fabulous and reasonable wheelchairs fine and toilets access.
