At market square you can get hand made crafts, fruits or vegetables or have a seat and have brunch at one of the little cafes that dot the market.

Nice building, entrances to all the eateries that are available from the boardwalk side. Not much going on. A few boutiques selling overpriced wares, souvenirs. etc.

I really enjoyed seeing local fish, bakery items, fruits, seaweed, and locally made crafts. We enjoyed talking to the vendors and sampling local products.
