It's worth to go this place only on Friday. You won't find tourists here but the local PPL. It's a local market of fruits, vegetables, fish, pulses and dry fruits. Go to see the local PPL and market.

Very traditional weekly market, crowed, colourful, great bargains, from tons of veggies and locally grown unpolished rice, to the famous spicy goan pork chorizo sausage, to plants, clothes, cheap furniture, and much more, throbbing with action and riot of colours, aromas and sound,

We went early(10ish) and market was just opening(good for bargain as Indians consider it a bad omen if the first customer of the day doesn’t buy anything). Wear comfortable shoes
