This market is huge and they sell every type of fruit and vegetable. It's very crowded and most of the vendors sell the same items as the others. Very competitive! There is also a huge meat market and more shoes than I've ever seen!

Make sure you map this place because we found no signage and no one around seemed to know it by name. But when you find it you are in (if you enjoy raucous markets) for a treat. All your senses will be in alert. The...More
