  • This is the spot to go to on a Saturday. They have an amazing market where you can see and purchase a whole host of things from a variety of food and beverages. Is often really busy as it draws a large crowd and therefore you may have to weight in some lengthy queues but the experience is worth it, makes for a great start to the weekend. A good place for a group outing and it is also kids friendly.
  • Really great spot for a bite to eat on a Saturday morning with plenty of great choices and options. Most people would give this a five star but because it's so busy and there are many tourists it can get a bit too busy and crowded. Suggest going early for brunch and beer. Pot Luck Club do a great little breakfast here. Top tip!
