  • To say in advance is that you should be looking out for their valuables. The market itself is covered and a business connects to the next. After a few shops seen actually everything, what is there. The market is great for souvenirs and of course you should always negotiate the price. The products are of very varying quality. Bought bags but, now nearly two years holding. Overall, the market is worth a visit surely.

  • 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.
