I think we were the only tourists visiting but felt warmly welcomed. Locals keen to advance their goods. Nice selection of foods, fruit, veg and crafts. Would visit again.

Lots of stalls. Good vibe and pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning. There are many local vendors and also some from other parts of the province. I go for jewellery, baking and produce.

There is a good variety of vendors, selling everything from fresh produce, to handmade foods and crafts. There is ample parking, even for larger vehicles or those towing trailers (lots of tourist traffic in the summer).
