I like the way the market continually changes its products, bringing in new imported sauces, pickles, seasonings, cheeses etc. Always fun to shop here - come for a few items and you always leave with a dozen or so! Less stellar is the next-door Billy's...More

Coombs is a bizarre location to find Foodie ingredients -- but here's where they are! If you want spice blends, sauces or a three-litre jar of capers, this market has it. From food, to hats, to hardware and trinkets you'll find it at the Old...More

Box checked and fun to see. The store was fun to explore (you will need 20 mins to do it justice and throughly explore). Great gardening planters and pots for sale as well. Lots of local and artisan made products. Worth it!

The goats on the roof are a big draw card here, and make for great photos, but there is so much to this market. It's a good idea to get here early if possible. Our first visit was soon after they opened in the morning...More
