Enjoyed the BBQ competition, only wished we could have tasted the contestants entries! Nice little (expensive) shops in this area.

“Really nice stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Farmer's Market on Thursday evenings, a nice laid back atmosphere, and easy to walk about. A little too much "gallery" for my taste (if you buy something in a "shop" it costs $10, but if you buy the same thing in a "gallery" it costs $50) - but overall a really nice stop.
