  • A lot of local and imported fruits can be found here. The price is quite cheap and in fact you can bargain for a lower price. It has the eating places known as warong and many local dishes are cooked fresh here. You can find all sorts of clothing as well. T-shirts printed with local pictures and slogans are quite cheap but of course not so much on the qualities. It's a nice place to visit.
  • It a market that services the food needs of Africans and make us to feel at home, though away from home
  • Great place to discover different fruits and vegetables. Quite cheap.
  • Oldies are goodies. Best hidden treasure in terms of food and best place to buy fresh produce.
  • So many fresh fruit and unknown veggies and half the price compare to shopping center , very worth to visit. Love it
