So it is a national historic site. It is the oldest working farmers market in the country. It’s a great place to stop and get lunch especially if you’ve done a tour of the old city and there are lots of old town walking tours...More

Visited the market this morning. For a Saturday the crowds were light and there was plenty of vendors open. Great for gifts!

It you love markets and art and food make sure you wander through here. And take a look at the roof - it is an inverted ships Hull. Plenty of beautiful things for gifts.

Unfortunately we do not open on Sunday's. Most of our vendor's are family run businesses and Sunday is the only day they have off. I hope you can make it in another day. :)
