  • It's a great location to get a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. There's also a section of the market that has clothing,shoes,household items and so much more. It's a one stop location where you can find just about anything. The location is also in close proximity to public transportation via roadway or water because the Parika boat stelling is located behind the market. In general it's a fun location to visit.
  • The market smells funky in different sections, especially where the meats are sold. It's crowded and not well lit. But there's a great variety of things sold in the market. All the food items you can think of, clothing, jewelry, shoes, accessories, household items etc.
  • Daily market with everything you could want, including fresh produce, handmade crafts, clothing, and cooked food.
  • Local atraction but visitors need to be careful while un the area.
  • It's very convenient for transportation and shopping...however security needs to step up
