Where you can see and buy all real local tastes....pay attention, it’s not a tourist market but it’s where locals everything they need to cook!

Tucked away a bit and we stumbled onto it almost by mistake. Good variety of goods. Lots of locals here so it must be good.

We enjoy seeing how locals shop when we're in a country or city that's new to us, whether it's grocery stores or markets. This market was a mix of tourist-centered vendors but inside there were butchers, so you know they're catering to locals. All the...More
