  • Very nice place, for fruit and meat options really good. Specially for breakfast or lunch Mane is amazing place. Lots of varieties for meat lovers. Also at the end of bazaar, you find a brewery, he has really nice choices for beers. You can spend a day easily here. Out side of this market you can find almost everything at shops but not high quality and of course very reasonable prices
  • If you like meat and sea food, you must visit here. Specifically if you are a kind of carnivore you definitely eat at Mane, you will love it. I don't know where in this market but there is brewery at the end of this place and he is serving lots of really tasty beers. You can test and choose which one you like. For breakfast or lunch if you are around this place, don't look around, go in and try all. Around this market you will find cheap and of course not so good quality but almost everything, electronics, leather bags, mobile accessories, clothing, shoes, etc.
  • Good to see if you're in the area, but don't go out of your way. Plenty of places to eat in here, loads of tropical fruit stalls, crafts beers, meat and cheeses... but it is very much for tourists so you can expect to pay much higher prices here compared to elsewhere. Be careful when being offered fruit to sample, some of these expect you to pay for the samples after you've tried them, just check it's free before tasting. If this review was helpful please give it a like :) enjoy.
  • Very nice market with plenty of places to eat and drink. The produce is a bit expensive and make sure you check the prices carefully. There is another market across the road that is much less busy and prices about 20% cheaper if you are wanting to buy a lot of produce. Otherwise enjoy the ambience - it's very interesting!
  • What an amazing experience this market was, I got to drink fresh juice and taste the most delicious and amazing fruit there was before I bought some to take home. The shop packed it so well that I could even travel with it back home! What an amazing place!
