I too apologize for my late response. Hope this helps future visitors. I was cautioned about pickpockets before my visit to Plaza de Mercado de Paloquemao. We took public transportation. As soon as we got on the bus, a lady signaled to me to remove my earrings and hold my handbag close.
If you speak English, vendors could charge you more. I speak enough Spanish to get around but my boyfriend does not. A vendor told me a price for some fruits; by the time he put the fruits in the bag and handed the bag to me, the price increased. He probably heard my English. I walked away. Although the price was very cheap by USA standards, I have an issue about anyone who cannot keep their word so 'I kept it moving". Be careful of changing prices.
We returned to the general area a few days later. While returning to the bus station, my ipad was stolen. Moral of the story, speak very little English so as not to become a target. Be very aware of your surroundings. Although my instinct told me that the man was a thief, I let my guard down when I entered the bus station since there was police present. The thief jumped over the gate to get the ipad. No-one cared about my screams. One lady whispered to me that the police was worse (pejor).
I enjoyed the market, but be careful.
