“Small country market”
Review of Island Markets

Attraction details
Reviewed August 25, 2009

We went in August which is a fairly quiet time. Not very much in comparison to other markets but worthwhile visiting. Items not really cheap and I found some books selling more than in other stores on the Island.

The markets are held in the Bicentennial Centre in Burnt Pine. They held on a Sunday Morning.

The day we went the number of stalls were very small. There were stalls selling some quite good local souvenirs but that's about it. There was some live music and the general feel of the place was very friendly.

A pleasant enough way to spend half an hour, then amble on down the main street and grab breakfast at one of the many good cafes.

Vegetables are in short supply on the island. Potatoes, onion and garlic are the only vegetables that are imported so if you plan to cook your own meals get to the Sunday market early and you will be able to add to your supply of fresh vegetables and fruit. Home baked sausage rolls, egg and bacon pies, cakes and home made biscuits are also available and are of excellent quality. We were staying 2 weeks so we placed an order for sausage rolls for the next Sunday as they sold out very quickly the first week. A good range of second hand books were also available. I personally wasn't overly interested in the other stalls but it was a pleasant environment and I did buy some coasters that had local scenes on them and a fridge magnet that had the recipe for their famous Coconut Bread. These were very nice and made good gifts to take home. My four coasters form a little picture display on my wall.
