This is the place to experience the real local feel. It is the shopping center of the town for locals, who buy here from vegetables, meats, nuts, spices to clothing or utensils. There are few stalls, which also offer traditional clothing/shoes/hats, but tourists are rare...More

Great place, especially to buy fruits, vegetables and spices. Nice to see sellers and their art of plating. They also sell tobacco, but it is strong!

It's big and busy, if you look hard enough you are sure to find what you need and at a good price. Mostly caters for local needs, but there are some touristy bits. Well worth a wander.
