“Very popular, good idea to make a reso or get there early. If you have to wait, take a walk down by all the boats in the harbour. ”

“The market is such a jewel, no other market like it. Full of such creative local artists, amazing local organic vegetables and loads of delicious things to eat! A must see if you are here on a Saturday during the market season. There's a park in the middle which children love. It is a busy day in town so get there EARLY and I mean early, if you don't want to circle for parking.”
