We combined this visit to see and utilize the market. Everyone and everything great. Bought good fresh fish and produce to use at our self catering place in the mountains. Better than the supermarket.

Two big market halls, one largely fruit and veg and the other fish and seafood, with a street market outside, again largely food. Amazing sights and smells and lots to buy. Cafes, bars, shops and sea-side promenade close by. Definitely not to miss.

It is really worth to visit the market halls. In one hall you can only find fish and seafood and the other hall all other kind of food. It is nice to walk along and to watch the different fishes.

A lovely authentic market - sells meat, veg, fruit plus lots of other deli (and homemade) treats. Worth a look even if you're not buying anything.

Good range of fresh fish, meat and fruit and vegetables. Can get very busy on a Saturday. Parking can be tricky and generally you have to pay.

Even if you are not planning on cooking, the two markets are worth visiting. We bought several types of fish by pointing and holding up our fingers. Really inexpensive and everything was fresh and delicious. Next we went through the veg and fruit market. After...More
