Lovely Saturday Market with a nice atmosphere, fresh seafood with pop up restaurant in square, fresh produce is fantastic with lots of choices to make your weekend special. The town itself is lovely, just an enjoyable event.

Traveled from Cambridge to buy fish based on colleague's recommendation and we loved it. Such great selection of fish, cheese, bread, fresh coffee beans and sauerkraut! This will definitely become a regular Saturday thing.
