The Saturday outdoor street market will be open from 9am to 4pm and the streets are closed to traffic allowing visitors to wander at leisure through this artistic marketplace, being entertained by street performers and musicians, getting involved through interactive arts events as well as an opportunity to experience the delights of the local cuisine.
