If you want to see all the local foods and produce this is the place to visit. Not very clean but extremely busy as eveyone goes about buying their food and produce here. Take time to wander around and soak up the atmosphere.

The place is packed with people and packed with incredible quality fruit and veg, meat, and foodstuffs of every kind. It's 60,000 square metres, or the equivalent of two olympic pools by 12 olympic pools. With that many stalls, and so many decisions to make,...More

It is not the best market I have ever been to but it is really good. The size of it is the most amazing part. Seems like it takes up blocks and blocks, multiple buildings and a wide variety of produce, meats, and other items.
