This little market is OK for a few cheap gifts, but does not compare to some of the nicer shops. It felt tight & was was full of people !

The wife is a flea market kind of person. I shop at BJ's. I buy what's on the mannequin. :-) That being said, she had a good time. A shopping bag for $5. A golf hat for $5. Some jewelry for nominal prices. A beach cover-up for $20. They push. You bargain. It's supposed to be fun. I watched the... More

I visit the market every time I am in town! The vendors are great and very friendly. Purses, scarves, silver jewelry, beach cover ups, even a donkey with lipstick! You never know what you will find! The prices are very reasonable and you can get deals if you buy more than one of an item. It is in a safe... More

It is right on the waterfront in the middle of town. If your looking for something to take home with you or wear they are the most reasonably priced with a little bit of everything.

Prices in today's world are too controlled at the market.it was better 10 years ago plus the quality of all the T shirts they sell are only good for 1 wearing as they shrink up after only 1 washing. The place has gone down-hill in the last few years.they should move it closer to main street where more people would... More

You can find the traditional tourist items here like shirts, purses, and jewlery. Most sellers were selling the same type of items. They also like to barter so if you need gifts for the friends at home at a low cost, you can get a good deal. The neighborhood was nice too with a small park in the behind it.

Good buys and huge selection and it was even fun! There was something for everyone there. We went on a day when there was only one cruise ship in port so it was as busy as other days. Worth stopping at.

We happened upon the Market Square following an hour and an half of walking by numbingly redundant and ridiculously overpriced shops in the main shopping streets of C.A. While the market was a mix of touristy items like T shirts and key chains, there were also some items that might interest travelers looking for "something different". In the market were... More

My daughter was taught to haggle by my mother and after our trip on the Kon Tiki was over, she insisted we walk to the Market Square. It was a pretty 20-25 minute walk along the water on a nice boardwalk to find Market Square, just after the firehouse as promised. Remember when crossing streets that they drive on the... More

Great place to go haggle some prices on the goods your looking for, this place is like a flea market in really tight quarters. You can find coach, Versace, Dolce, Gabanna, Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin and other name brands in these little easy up tents, even found local License plates for my collection. Good food cart in the back of... More
