An amazing market with all the professionalism you'd expect of the French. One Midhurst observer, Miranda Twiss - a self-confessed foodie - said " A great market. Really suprised. I spent far too much money!" The strawberries were "very expensive - as were the peaches but they were fantastic - as were the apricots.The cheese counter was the best."
