Wow! On Saturdays, a lot of vendors set up shop. Different ethnic foods are sold and they are really good. I couldn’t decide which one to try! A variety of gifts, crafts and souvenirs are also sold. Worth the visit!

They open early with people queuing at 6.30 am - opens 7 am. There is a large car park near the Cunard centre Pier 23. We arrived by ship so parking wasn't an issue.

There are numerous spots to grab a bite..... but the best spot to eat is up on the roof top.... if it isn't too windy.... or on the steps where you can watch everyone milling around the vendors.
