My favourite part of this market was seeing all the beautiful flowers and the amazing variety of fruits. Possibly some of the most impressive selection of fruits I have ever seen! Easy to walk round by yourself or part of a food tour.

I have been to many of these local markets but this is the best one in terms of size and quantity of products. Everything is sold here-produce, meats, plants, housewares, etc. In somewhat of a seedy area. Very crowded with locals but not many tourists,...More
