A few stalls set up at the top of town add a bit of life on a Saturday. Found a few last minute Christmas presents, reasonable price too.

Walked around here on Friday night for the Hallowe'en festival which was great so returned on Saturday. Small market with good selection of stalls. As noted by other reviewers a pity there are so many beggars laying around the place.

Hi, Sorry to have taken so long to reply, but I've been trying to find the date for you. Don't know about 2018, but in 2017 Christmas market started in the shopping centre on 22nd November.
