  • Such a great place to try all kinds of food. They also had a section for other things too. Was clean and fun. More seating would have made it better. Be sure to come earlier as we got there a bit too....  more

  • Great experience on the Fri-Sun and Wednesdays that the market is open for. Worthwhile getting in early and taking your time coming down all the aisles. Plenty of amazing prepared food ready to go and lots of fresh fruit, veg, butchers and fish mongers to try out. Some great oyster bars and sashimi bars to get your hands on super fresh seafood. So much delicious food, you'll need to be rolled out of there!
  • A lovely area to shop. Naturally great to get the fresh and good qualities of groceries. Plus there are many lovely bistros, cafes, bakeries etc. inside and outside of the market, so I could enjoy the nice drinks and dishes as well while I'm shopping. And various kinds of shops are located near the market, it's quite covenient and fun.
