Very busy market. Not the friendliest vendors. I did bargain for a couple of things. Got a better price than from the street vendor shops. Very crowded so you have to really watch your purses etc.

This is mainly a wholesale market mainly but sellers will sell individual items if you want them. It's packed with all types of children's and adult's clothes, shoes, fabric, suitcases and some household goods. It's huge. I didn't see the food section so can't comment...More
