This port-side neighborhood of alleyways, covered walkways, and outdoor verandas has been operating for more than 100 years across the same sprawling streets. The emblematic mirrored canopy houses many stalls; a mixture of junk shop, antique fair, jumble sale, and old school market all rolled into one. Furthermore, it’s open six days a week, from Sunday through Friday; from morning through early evening hours; this is where to go for finding those unique, one-of-a-kind items from long ago.
