You should experience the market at least once BUT it may not be everyone's cup of tea. Lots of interesting shops and places to eat and a very funky and interesting place to browse. However, it is also somewhat grubby and crowded, and as others have mentioned, there were a fair number of mentally ill people walking around, yelling, etc. No disrespect to the mentally ill or unhoused, just something to be aware of. We enjoyed our multiple visits there, had some tasty empanadas and other treats. Go at least once!
