“Real Culture Shows at a Local Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The market is open 6AM-6PM on weekdays, but the time to go is on Saturday and Sunday. There are many more merchants and there are food vendors on the weekend. Fruit, vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, music, shoes, sandals, clothes, jewelry, cleaning products, and more can be found here. We were surprised to see the live chickens being prepared for sale. They slit the neck, dropped the in the boiling water, pulled them out and plucked them. In a very short time they were packaged for the buyer. Something not seen in the US.
