“Great market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

A little bit of everything here. Gracious venders, no hassles. Had fun buying fruit for the house and fixings for guacamole, all with lots of smiles. There are great places for my favorite shrimp cocktail and upstairs there's a vendor in the corner who sells great pottery at reasonable prices.
