Excellent fruit and vegetables for sale, plus booths with local crafts, arts, and clothing. We felt safe browsing and bartering for items. Vendors were friendly, with limited English. Many items seemed to be made by Panamanians in Panama. A recommended visit if you are in the area. We visited on Saturday and all the booths were open.

Great selection of souvenirs and fruit. Souvenirs range from little bracelets to painted feathers/plates to switch blades and hats and shirts. Vendors usually start off high but quickly drop the prices and you can try to haggle to get a better deal. The market is open seven days a week.

We went on a Wednesday, found some great fruits and vegetables! Carved soap stones, jewelry, you name it. We had a tour guide with us Luis Pinto (contact him through whatsapp +507 6732 5221 you won't be disappointed) he made it easy to communicate with the vendors. He knew so much about the place, and all the different places to... More

Nice market but I might be partial since I enjoy markets in general. Good spot to buy fruit and vegetable as well as craft.

Nice little market with produce and knick knacks. Lots of hammocks, handmade jewelry, some snacks. Wood platters and bowls looked nice, but expensive.

A very interesting place to find fresh fruits and vegetables that are cultivated by the locals, as well as beautiful plants and flowers of the country. You can also find souvenirs, snacks and much more at this nice and warm spot. This is the first stop you can do when you go to the town and provide yourself with food... More

Nice stuff, not junk. Most of the vendors either spoke English or were able to communicate via other means. Very good prices. Open air, fresh air, friendly vendors, near restaurants.

A good way to spend an hour or two. Local crafts and garden goods. Vendors had all the usual souvenirs. Some cheap some authentic. You'll feel good supporting the locals!

All kinds of handcrafts by indigenous peoples are for sale on Sunday at the market as well as all kinds of plants, all kinds of fruits. Beautiful molas that require hours of needle work. These can be made into clothing such as handbags, framed for art, made into pillow cases, etc. In the same area we had a mud facial... More
