  • Absolutely brilliant...awesome vibe and very nifty stuff that you can find for all.corners of your house...
  • Lots of crafts and be willing to haggle for best price.

  • Most items are a rip off , merchants try their luck and they will try charging you 5x the price. Not exactly fair trade more like a tourist trap. Rather wait for Sunday roof top market, they are more honest there.
  • best spicy cheese I've tasted in a while. right next door is a bread bin that makes the most amazing garlic, olive and tomato bread.
