“Lots of shops”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We went once when it was raining and it wasn't so great, but on the other sunny days it was bustling! Lots of food, pearl and produce stalls. Many shop owners are happy for a chat or even some free food if you are lucky!

“A great way to spend your Saturday morning”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

A market with an amazing lively atmosphere, we had a great time here- nice spot to pick up a sarong, flowers, leis, or other souvenirs, try out the fresh local produce and hear some island music or watch some dancers. We arrived about 10am and it seemed to be in full swing then :)
