We enjoyed wandering around the market and the food stalls. A good variety of items for Christmas shopping and tables to sit and dine on the food for sale there.

Markets are always great as they often showcase local talent and an array of gifts, food and everything you desire or want to buy! Great for the whole family even if you are simply browsing.

some of the stalls work with EFTPOS. However, bring some pocket money. My favourite? The TAKO TAKO balls (super cheap), and the Chilean food stall
