My wife and I visited here. It’s well laid out and staff seem reasonably pleasant. The Brewery above is a bonus. The part I found a bit disappointing was it was a lot of the same types of stallholders. There’s lots of stalls selling identical...More

I love it here, a mixture of tat and craft! Good for a wander, some clever people with their makes. Look out for the clay men...I'm getting quite a collection now! They are truly amazing!

I popped in today as I have occasionally during the time it has been open. I was sorry to see how empty it is looking and the big turnover of traders. I really love the idea of the Emporium. They had a few signs saying...More
