The market was not that busy, and several stalls sell the same thing. You have to be careful what fruit you buy, some is very low quality.
The worst thing was seeing large birds landing on one of the fish stalls and being allowed to eat chunks out of the cut-up fish that were lying there waiting to be sold; the flies were having a ball on top of the fish too. You would have to burn the fish to make sure anything left behind by the flies and birds had been 'killed'. It's not the place for fresh fish !
