Owner description: Formerly a slave-trading market, this open-air fruit and vegetable market is a great place to stop and sample the fresh produce, especially the local specialty - genips.

“interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

You can get some values, but the merchants are agressive and do not take no easily for an answer. In the heat of the day, it is a smelly place.

Great deals and beautiful fine jewelry. Love my new silver and black onyx ring! Stores are closed on Sunday though, bummer.

“Your Basic Port of Call Junk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Lots of fake handbags. Non-aggressive vendors who have mostly the same stuff. Nothing unique offered except some rather unusually carved pipes.

“Cheap souvenirs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

This flea market is a great place to find good deals on souvenirs. Most vendors have negotiable prices and items make nice cheap gifts. If you are looking for unique and interesting gifts, it's going to be hard to find. I did see some wooden statues that were made right in front of me. Other than that its the regular generic, china made souvenirs. I would recommend this place for cheapos like me.
