There's a little bit of everything sold here, inside and outside with more local vendors. Very busy in the daytime. Outside and surrounding area gets a lot of people. With cars having to squeeze thru tight lanes and foot traffic it can get crazy. If you're not familiar with this area, its best not to come alone.
With a little love and some cleaning this market would be wonderful! I highly recommend you go with a local. I do not recommend going alone.
