Yes Ali, i have been many times on the Sunday and it really is good. It's so much more than just a market, i would recommend it. Parking will be a nightmare so i would suggest you get a bus.

I go every year on the Saturday late afternoon about 6-7 and its great - not so busy as Sunday but almost everthing is available to view so very enjoyable and relaxing. A good fun fair for the youngsters is available to enjoy too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR A FEW HOURS WANDER AROUND - animals, artesan, gastronomic, vehicles ... should be something for everyone. Make the effort and take the bus over there.
