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.

I feel really sorry for the retailers who moved into this 'village'; the property developer really sold them a pup. It's awful. Walking through at 11.00am on a Saturday (where was the pop up market?) there was no one there and a large number of...More

All shops are modern and stylish but there are few people. No liveliness there in the daytime. Night visiting may be funnier. Wifi access is awfully bad. Very very inconvenient.More

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
