This is a large market with more trash and treasure stalls than craft stores. To me it was more trash than treasure though. There were several food vans and entry was via a gold coin donation. Nothing that was of interest to me.

Unless you need something they sell I wouldn't bother. Visiting from Melb where we are spoilt for good markets it was a let down. Had to pay to get in and we stayed 10 mins if that. Junk mostly. Very disappointing but possibly my expectations...More

Wandered around here for a couple of hours, looking at all of the various stalls. Plenty of options, plants, fresh vegetables, food, breads and various random stalls. Good time waster on a Sunday morning, and you can find pretty much anything that you can think...More

Due to the time of the year the market had a lot less stalls than the warmer months. It's still a good morning out.

We saw a flyer in the Visitor Information Centre boasting that this market has over 300 stalls and thousands of visitors each week. So we excitedly planned to go there before visiting the Kryal Castle on Sunday. However, much to our disappointment it really is...More
