We loved this place!
When you walk out of the tube station you find yourself in the middle of a cobblestone street filled with performing artists, fruit stands and small shops. Go to your right and the courtyard is filled with local artists, musicians and magicians. Plenty of places to eat (try Ponti's cafeteria style restaurant inside the courtyard). Don't limit yourself to the courtyard though, there are plenty of little shops in the area and another "indoor" market right next door.

What to buy: Great local artists sell everything from jewelery to prints to dolls.
Several shoe stores in the area, bookstores, music stores, pubs and look for a store called Octopus (very funky gifts!)
