Good place for shopping starting from local fresh food up to souvenirs with reasonable prices. Opened also in afternoon hours (not all shops).

This market is so fun! It can be a bit cheesy downstairs and you have to shop around a bit to get the best stuff, but there are some fun things to be had here. If you are looking for shells, there's a great store...More
