We got there just before 2pm on Sunday, 18 March 2018 and it was like a ghost town. Of the many shop units there most were either closed permanently or just not open on a Sunday. Only 2 units were serving food despite others having...More

We read the reviews, then the responses which indicated food trucks on site during a summer weekend day. Rubbish - didn't see one. There are a couple of wee touristy shops, the Platinum sports promise was boarded up. We were starving and pretty annoyed about...More

I wish I had read recent reviews; there was nothing there. One shop and a coffee shop, and a bunch of empty store fronts was about it. Huge disappointment.

Victoria Market's website describes a vibrant set of shops and restaurants with a "pop up market". Very disappointed when all I found were a few shops and restaurants, very few people and a bunch of closed businesses and empty storefronts. It sounds like it might...More

Very quiet today - empty shopfronts and the few open offering "clearance " prices - suggesting that they won't be open for long. I don't know what the developers have done wrong, however this space is sad. I walked from the ferry terminal, which was...More
