The stunning metal framed building is worth walking through. The market hall consists of vendors of various food, from fruit and vegetables to meat and fish and is a hive of activity.

If I was living here this market would be a must. Architecture was lovely and the smells and produce is everything I would expect from a market like this. Certainly worth a visit to bimble and enjoy the smells. Lovely building.

Visit this market every year and there was no lack of salad or vegetables as we are led to believe right now due to weather.

Spend a morning here looking and grazing. Outstanding produce and an amazing variety. Try the unbelievable range of ham where as the price goes up the meat slides more easily down The throat.

Lovely place to see and be seen. Lovely place as a food hall but not as a market- multiple areas to eat. Not much else to do except wander around.

We were staying just opposite so it was easy to visit at different times of the day. The architecture of the place is great and what I found was amazing how clean it was for a food market. Worth a visit.
