The market place of Sccra. A bit too crowdy. Have to be careful enough with your belongings and self. But you get almost everything you need for your home st a reasonable rate.

I suggest you visit the market yourself to find out and establish the relationship with the buyers if they are available. I couldn’t walk the entire market, apologies I may not be able to give you a perfect answer.
