Just what one would imagine an English market place to look like. Shame about all the parked cars spoiling the view. Just outside the Bishops Palace, so impossible to miss.

Every Wednesday and Saturday from 9:00am to 4:00pm although some fresh food stalls start closing about 1:00pm. Parking is at a premium on market days.
