The cattle market with all the animals was interesting. The stalls around were varied from very good fresh vegetables and plants, to a farmer's market and foods to a flea market. Do not miss the street market in the town.

The grand children loved the animals. We even watched the auction of the beasts which was interesting. Stalls where a bit hit and miss, but overall the kids had a nice time.

This is a great market place which is full if excellent and delicious produce. I also recommend coming here to see the Cheese Festival and Chocolate Festival. Both were excellent occasions.

A good old fashioned street type market mostly under cover. Bought fresh sausage, potted meat (several types available from one stall, and cheese. Not overpriced and very tasty. Parking not very easy because long stay was full.
