This warehouse on the water is full of junk and trinkets, but also nice artwork. Lots of the painters are there displaying their work. They're priced around 20-60 cuc, so reasonable. Great souvenirs to bring home.

If you're looking for a piece to take home as a sourvenier, definitely visit this market! They sell lots of generic trinkets and t-shirts, but you can also find beautiful art painted by local cuban artists!

Lots of booths and a variety of things to buy. Prices vary from booth to booth. An interesting place to visit but, as more tourists go to Havana, the more pushy vendors will become.

You can find everything here, from art, food, clothing, and cigars. They were very willing to negotiate price and everyone took dollars. This is a huge flea market that is well worth a few hours of your time.

Are there set hours for different days? We want to go either when it first opens, or the very end of the day on Sunday.
