A huge collection of both food and merchandise vendors under one big smelly roof. One review mentioned a dead dog which almost had me skip this place, but it wasn’t quite that bad. However the stuff was all low quality and questionable. Don’t waste your...More

This market is almost entirely indoors with some spillover to the outside. I didn't think too much of the merchandise. There were a large number of food stalls here so it might be a place to go for a bite to eat.

Great place to buy a bag of fresh figs for a dollar or so. Counters with great sandwiches. Dogs laying around. Friendly people. Just an all around nice place.
