An array of fresh fruit, vegetables and fish. The market smelt fresh unlike some foreign markets. There were also butchers selling a diverse choice of meats.

The two covered markets are open 6 days a week and on a Saturday you also have the local outside market. Just wander the stalls which are a splash of colour, smells and noise and enjoy mixing with the local people going about their life.
