Well worth visiting. Easy and free parking on site. Outdoors in summer time. Live music playing and great atmosphere. Local produce like plants, cheeses, beers etc. Pricey for most things but all locally grown and produced so you expect to pay a little more.

Lots of food, verges, produce, meat, wine, seafood, plants, coffee, tea, oils, sauces, chocolate, breads..... So much variety in a lovely setting and with free music to listen to whilst browsing. A lovely way to spend an hour or two on a Sunday morning!

If we were staying longer this would be a good place to get fresh produce. The fresh baked pastries were amazing! A good place to visit on a Sunday morning and get some brekkie and a coffee.

Pretty OK selection of local produce. Everything seems to be Artisinal or Boutique which the vendor's think gives them the right to charge way over the top prices. $8 for a small jar of mint sauce? Come on! On the positive side, access was good...More
