Although this place is slightly off the beaten track, it is well worth the effort for a visit. It was snowing on Sunday which may well have worked to our advantage as it meant that it was less crowded than I hear it can get. As a consequence there were also fewer flower stalls and so the shops were more accessible. There are some good places to eat and drink, which makes the whole experience more complete.

Loved the atmosphere and buzz of the flower market even on a January Sunday. The diverse range of alternate eating places and retail experience very refreshing! Was strange that street entertainers/ buskers who were adding to the atmosphere were being moved on (charged) by local street wardens?

There is a great variety in the kinds of flowers and other plants are available. My favorites were the tiny olive trees. The flowers seemed very reasonably priced -- most things seem to cost a "fiver." It was packed, but pleasant. Overall a nice place to take a stroll after your morning coffee.
