“Fresh and cheap”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great range of fruit and veggies at reasonable prices. Head down early Sat morning for the best choice. There are also stands selling clothes and jewelry and souvenirs.

“Worth a visit if...”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

you have never tasted coconut juice from the shell with a straw, red papaya with lime juice squeezed on top, fried plantains (if the bloke is still there) and a half dozen other notable eat treats. Bargain way to do so is a visit here rather than a restaurant.

“Love Rustys”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

As a local I love Rustys - I visit every Friday morning with my 2 year old toddler as well as the wonderful fresh fruit and veg, we always have a samosa from the samosa stall, the lime mint coolers are great as well, love the Fetta cheese from Gallo, fresh coffee beans from any where in the world, a coffee from Billy or Barista Sista is always great and just trying all the different tropical fruits. Its a bustling lively atmosphere - love it

“Food galore!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

If you like farmer's markets, this one beats a lot of them! It is huge, with stalls and stalls of fresh fruit and vegetables. There are also jewelry places and food stalls for lunch. Get there early, as it gets crowded.

“Great Range, Cheap Prices”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

There is a superb range of conventional and non conventional foods. What I love best is the coconuts for drinking and the freshness of the herbs - coriander, basil, shallots - compared to what you'd get at the supermarkets. You can even get fresh galangal, yams, taro and there are bucketloads of cherries and strawberries just coming into season.

I would totally just shop here for the week for fresh veggies and swing by the butcher and baker on the way home. Prices get slashed the closer you get to closing time.

There is also a great value vietnamese eatery just around the corner on one side - stop there for lunch first, then collect your groceries on a full stomach and off you go!
