  • This market has a lot of shops with blankets, ponchos, hats, scarfs and much more local wood art and apalca products. They do have a lot of the same, but overall the people are friendly. You can haggle over the price, but only to a certain limit from which they will not go any further. Because it has a roof over the market, you can also go there when the weather is less good.
  • Completely agree with Vincent's post. You can also walk a few block to any local place for lunch/dinner.
