Tips for you
Seems to be a bustling market for locals, best for people watching and soaking in local culture rather than shopping unless you want fresh seafood or veggies of which there is an abundance. Definitely worth checking out...
This is not to be missed. If you love Fresh BBQ Fish and Seafood then this will be something you will enjoy. We had the BBQ Red Snapper and Sea Bass with some rice and vegetables.... You choose the fish and they cook it. We loved it and would go back in a heart beat. Rest of market is friendly. Great pancakes and frozen ice cream rolls.... Really worth going in the evening.
