Absolutely a complete waste of time. It's so run down it's unpleasant. Didn't help that it was raining heavily but even in the sunshine it was awful. We love markets and rummaging around but this is borderline seedy

Just to buy second hand things. Nothing from artisans or farmers. Don't waste your time going unless you need a second hand tool, bike, etc.
