Went here to buy some vegetables and was surprised how miserable, and devoid of smiles and any other response the staff holders were. Good selection and interesting to see variety of fruit vegetables include smoked fish.

It is a common encounter with open fish markets to see concerns of hygiene and cleanliness. Here one is heartened to see systematic arrangement to maintain those essential elements in place.
