We loved this teeming, local market held on Friday and, I think, Tuesday every week. People, the majority in traditional costume, come from all over the area to visit the market which is REALLY, REALLY CROWDED. This is not a market for tourists and we saw only about half a dozen other "gringos" there. On sale is produce, meet products, fish - dried & fresh, a wide variety of dried corn, live chickens, turkeys and geese and eggs by the hundred (I've never seen no many in one place before. Women everywhere carrying either net-covered baskets or cloth-covered bundles on their heads and men using forehead straps to carry things. For me, at 5' 2". a unique experience was being as tall and even taller than just about everyone there!! Given the degree of crowding it is sensible to be careful with money etc. but no more so than in many major cities around the world.
