The market is a small one, it is ideal to see the culture and life in one go. In saturday it is very pack, if you dont like crowd it is best to visit during the week.

This market seems to be aimed at locals: it sells fish, spices, fruit and clothing. The biggest market day is Saturday. If you're in Victoria it's worth checking out.

Lots of fresh fish here. Looks nice. Smells a bit bit what do you expect from a fish market. Fruit and veg here too. Worth a quick look even if not buying.
