This is where the locals come to shop. Fruits, vegetables, meat, fish. It's all there. I enjoyed the experience. A completely non-tourist destination.

It is worth walking through the market to see the wares, so beautifully arranged so as to give maximum appeal. Even if there was not a huge variation of things to buy. Mostly food although there was a small amount of tourist ware.
