Fodor's Review

An impressive piece of architecture in itself, this large restored Victorian market hall (covered by a glass canopy) is one-part bazaar and one-part food court. The main market days are Thurday through Sunday, with a notable antiques markets on Thursdays and a fashion and art market on Fridays (plus, on every first and third Friday and second Saturday, a record fair; and a vintage fair every first Saturday of the month), as well as markets on other days selling goods ranging from handmade clothes to toys, hats, and jewelry. While some of the quality is pedestrian, you can also find interesting clothes, accessories, and leather goods by new designers. The adjoining brick market building houses upscale shops. The nearer the weekend, the busier it all gets.
