loved the food and bought amazing cheeses from one of the stalls. had breakfast however the wooden cutlery makes it extremely difficult to eat with. pancakes were also the best. dont enjoy the fleamarket stalls.

This is my favourite place to in the area to spend with friends. So much more than a market, crafts, fresh produce, great food, wine and local beers plus live music. Really is a must if you are visiting the area.

Was invited by friends to go this market. Lots of things to see, buy, eat, and drink. Very cosy, with live music and a great atmosphere. You can easily spend a few there, simply watching others. Met some really nice people out there.

The market has lots of great food. We LOVE the chilli popper spring rolls from the Springroll stand and the takoyaki at the Asian stand. I would advise not going in the sweltering heat though, since the humidity and the crowds can get a bit...More

I go there every week for my curry fix! The tastiest ever! Only add chilli if you like it hot! or youghurt if very mild! Highly recommended. Free music, parking and excellent food. My hubby loves Sepp's eisbein and sausage platter!
