The market goes indoors during the winter months - under the grandstand and in the large shed next door, but you can still guarantee there will plenty of stalls with fresh and local produce. Food stalls are parked between the buildings for a scrumptious brunch...More

Definitely worth a visit to the farmers market. Lots of variety in produce. Music, coffee, wine, food carts. Has got an ATM if you forget to go with cash. If you're on holiday great place to stock up on yummy food for your stay.
