The staff are pleasant enough, there's local and reasonably priced produce, but it's so busy and the new parking lot configuration is even worse than it used to be. I try to avoid at all costs.

We stopped to get veggies and fruit on our way home from PE and stayed for lunch as well. We had the fish and chips at the Resturant and it was excellent and very large portion for a one piece order! Highly recommend.

Definitely worthy of a stop any time of the year. Its expanded a lot recently and everything from the market to the seafood shop is quite cool. They do have kennels for pups. It is expensive however and expect to pay tourist prices
