My wife loves markets and she enjoyed this one. It is of medium size and offers local crafts and food at market prices. Not a bad choice of food, especially the paella place.

This market is very colourful, different in many ways, great to meet people and you see things which you wouldn't find in shops. There is well something to eat and great coffee.

Raced in here to get out of the rain, I spent sometime in here looking at all the little trinkets and bits and bobs. Something different with great coffee near by.
