I had read that the vendors were aggressive and pushy but we found just the opposite. They were all friendly and helpful even referred us to other vendors if they did not have exactly what we were looking for. We joked, bargained, asked to stop and start all over with our bargaining, Shared laughter and hugs and had the best time. There were painters painting and selling at the same time. Wood carvers carving what they were selling right in front of you and the vendors were very honest about telling you if they were the maker of something or if it was purchased by them for resale. I think if you go early in the day before it is too hot and go expecting a good time then that is what you will find.
