Really great way to spend an hour or two on a sunny day, strolling around the piers, ice cream in hand is optional and weather dependent. The enclosed market has lots of snack food options, and there is also a great range of bars and dining options. Can't beat it.

The open market has a variety of foods and fresh fish. There are also many places for food and shopping with local artwork.

loved the artisan shops and the public market. Would have loved it more if cars were limited to the perimeter. it was easy to get distracted by the shops and not realize you're on a street with real car traffic!

Well worth a visit. A lot of quirky shops, arty workshops of various skills, the old brewery site and shop etc

The produce and other food items were amazing. I wish I could take some home with me - we sure don't have raspberries that size where I come from! Great spot for people watching and enjoying the water too. I did find the gift shops and that type of thing very pricey, but still nice to window shop.
