This is a large market with more trash and treasure stalls than craft stores. To me it was more trash than treasure though. There were several food vans and entry was via a gold coin donation. Nothing that was of interest to me.

It used to be so much bigger and better, with it being almost completely full of stalls of all varieties now it’s quite empty and dull, the flowers and the Dutch pancakes in the shed are the only reason I go there now

Have markets like this down my way. Some are similar others are much better if not held every week. We went before going out for lunch and not a lot there. Mostly people trying to sell unwanted goods but some ppl I’m sure love it....More

Wandered around here for a couple of hours, looking at all of the various stalls. Plenty of options, plants, fresh vegetables, food, breads and various random stalls. Good time waster on a Sunday morning, and you can find pretty much anything that you can think...More

Due to the time of the year the market had a lot less stalls than the warmer months. It's still a good morning out.

We saw a flyer in the Visitor Information Centre boasting that this market has over 300 stalls and thousands of visitors each week. So we excitedly planned to go there before visiting the Kryal Castle on Sunday. However, much to our disappointment it really is...More
