Antique collectors could set aside a Sunday morning for a trip to Mercantic, a collection of gaily painted timber huts occupied by antique and bric-a-brac dealers selling records, books, vintage clothes, jewellery, artwork, home furnishings and much more. Ample food and drink vendors on hand add to the good cheer, and there's even live music some days.

The first Sunday of the month is delivery day, when the stall-holders take delivery of a new wave of old stuff. The permanent market, with some 80 stall holders, is open during the week too. There’s also an activities and play area for children.
