Enjoyed the market. Good range of stalls, unfortunate to have a looooong wait for a decent coffee. Friendly and easy to get around. Our boy is 8 so we didn't need a push chair, but would be easy if you had one.

We love this market. As locals we are blessed to have such a massive variety of excellent stalls every week, from organic food, crafts , clothing and art to live music, snacks, coffee and eclectic food stands.

A very interesting market and lovely way to spend an hour. Plenty of fresh produce from fruit and vegetable stalls. A good selection of Merino/Opossum woollens, a great variety of clothing to suit all tastes. The Maori bread was my favourite but plenty of different food stalls to satisfy your taste buds. Vast selection of preserves of all types. Highly... More

It is a pretty big market with lots of different vendors. The highlight for me was the food, specifically the delicious Belgian waffles with berries and homemade whipped cream!
