Similar to many street vendors around the world, with a selection of items that would appeal to locals - toiletries, clothing, fruit, etc. Couldn't find any local artistry.

You can buy anything here and it is where the locals come to buy their goods. There are lots of stalls outside and also several buildings with indoor stalls. Lots of fresh food and other items.
