I visited this market during opening hours. It's a nice local market where I was able to find local clothing and material. A nice stroll.

A busy, crowded center of the city bustling with locals as well as tourists, there is no parking so you will have to walk, best place to buy local handicrafts,fresh pineapples and other fruits! Eat the freshest and sweetest pineapples here.
