We had loved the coconut pie dessert served at the evening fish fry on an earlier visit to the island, so we were keen to find a local source of it on this visit. It is ironic, as Norfolk, being subtropical, doesn't grow coconuts!!
We turned up early to the markets and hit the jackpot straightaway, with a lovely lady called Colleen. Her coconut tarts were so good we went back later in the morning to get some more - and they lasted right through to when we left the next Saturday. We bought a little fundraising cookbook from her that has quite a few good recipes in, and she also gave us her own recipe for the tarts.
Overall we enjoyed the markets - the fruit and vegetables were good quality, despite the long drought that has plagued the island, and we liked browsing through the stalls. The latest fad seems to be small laminated fridge magnets made out of photos of island scenes - cheap and cheerful.
It is a mustsee (and free) attraction on the island.
