A lot of stalls with veggies, fruits, meats, spices etc. Opportunity to take interesting pictures of food and people but nothing more (unless you are actually shopping). You can skip.

This was an additional point we covered during our tour to Bhutan. It is surprising to see such oraganized, clean and neat market. Also, it was not at noisy and comfortable to buy groceries, fruits and non-veg

We had heard quite a bit about the farmer's market but were still pleasantly surprised on coming here. It's the cleanest market I've seen till date. This is despite the presence of wet items like fruits, vegetables & fish here. Farmers from the surrounding villages...More
