Set in an historic building with lots of charm, the market offers fish, meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a great variety of cooked dishes, cupcakes and locally made chocolates.

    • You would have loved it Liz. And yes, I’m sure any market run by you would be the best in the land!

    • Hi Catherine, great to hear from you. We bought some terrific locally made chocolate, and I treated myself to a locally crafted necklace. I always think jewellery is a great souvenir of your travels – small and easy to carry, and it’s a talking point when you are back home.
