Not too pushy; businesswomen will ask for you to step in their stores to just take a peek. I recommend taking a look at prices or asking around first before settling, to be sure you pay a fair price. Fruits and... More

The sucupira market was nice to see, but was very expensive, so we ended up buying nothing. Was nice to walk around and feel the atmosphere though!

This market is a real African market where you can buy anything you want and more. It's also the place where the minivans for Assomada, Tarrafal , Ciudad Vieilla and other places leave.
