Go on a Wednesday or Saturday when all the vendors are there. Other days there are only about 30 vendors.

A feast for the eyes first....then later for the stomach. We come here every Wednesday and Saturday to find the freshest fruits, vegetables and flowers. Come here fist plan your meals and menu around what you find here first. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and if you come here enough they get to know you and remember your preferences....

I have never seen so many tropical fruits and other delicious items. One can buy anything from Dragonfruit to Struitfruit, Apple Bananas, Strawberry Mangos, just to mention a few. Lot's of the fruits I have never seen so I don't know what they are. It's just amazing. Coffee is offered as well as local jellies and honey.

Couldn't wait to get out of there.... More
