Great place to soak up some local flavors and cultural. Tons of sweets, pottery and good eats at amazing prices. All the shop keepers were friendly and helpful. Once you tire of shopping take your goodies and walk across the street for tacos.

Very authentic market full of local and non local shoppers. Lots of gift ideas and huge selections of candy. If you go in hungry, you may buy more than you need ;)
