Go early for breakfast-great food for Friday night recovery, better fresh food than most restaurants been going since it started with 2 stalls never been sick. Saturday morning tradition fo locals more »
Great Market with lots of South East Asian food. Would recommend the Laksa from Mary's. $10 for a very tasty meal. Bring your own bowl for a bigger portion. The fresh juices were refreshing on a really hot day.
Love these markets! It is a little crowded for any parentsthatare bringing a pram, but there is a great range of fresh fruit and veg, smoothies, arts and crafts and local businesses. If you would like to eat some of the delicious hot food, don't forget to bring along your own container . Next time we go we will definitely be packing sunscreen and a water bottle as it is flipping hot
