This is a good market with good variety and reasonable prices. It is also indoors so the weather won't affect your visit. As with the rag market it is easy to get to by public transport

Good selection of fruit and veg, and what i would call trinkets, odds and sods, nothing of particular note and overall atmosphere a tad on the rough side when compared to markets overseas.
