We visited the market while visiting the town. We were on the hunt for a souvenir which we got at a reasonable price. Good selection of souvenirs, fruit/veg, clothing etc. There’s a restaurant/bar in the market which was quite busy. Worth a visit.

Lovely public market with mostly (all?) local produce. Most stations also offer a version (or more) of the local grogue. There is a pretty clean restroom in the NE (more or less) corner (byo tissue and soap). Definitely go upstairs to enjoy the view from...More
