  • Good variety of local produce sold here. The fish and seafood market section could be cleaner. The market now seems too small to accommodate the number of people selling their produce. All in all, can't really complain! :)
  • I'm trying to find the words to describe this market without being disrespectful. Me like!
  • Nice place, not dangerous with many choice of vegitables.
  • All manner of local products can be found here.. Local produce, fruits, handicrafts, herbal oils/lotions, coconut products, etc.. local artists also sell their wares here. Very talented folks. Exquisite carvings and headhunter figures carved from ebony are some of the cool stuffs you can find here for a reasonable price.. Dont hesitate to bargain if you're good at it.
  • Lovely place with beautiful flowers.
