The market is open on Saturday and Sunday each week. There is ample off road parking. Plenty of stall selling food, drink , plants, clothes and bric-à-brac. Saturday is much busier than Sunday with a few more stalls.

Hi Linda Yes there is plenty of parking and if you need shade you can park by the bamboo. Just ask the parking attendant if you see him. Judy
