The Shopping

Shopping is a mixture of vintage and inexpensive new fashion clothing and accessories. The market is laid out in long alleys of stalls with some larger shop buildings around the sides. There are lots of 2nd hand vintage Levi’s, T-shirts, hats, sunglasses, accessories and old toys. Also, army surplus, rock, and skate clothing and trainers. The antique and collectible vintage shops can be found around the edge of the market area selling old furniture, signs, lamps, luggage, clocks, and other items. You will need to bargain as most things are not priced, but prices are reasonable.

Bars & Music

On the far side of the market area is a lively bar street with mostly 2-story structures with open rooftops that have great views of the market. Most of the bars have live music with rotating bands playing all kinds of music from acoustic to hard rock taking in jazz, blues, pop, and rockabilly along the way. The most popular bars fill up by 9 pm and it can be difficult to find a seat after that time.
