  • So i rated it average mostly because of the cleanliness of the market. Apart from that, this is the best place to get good value handicrafts and clothes at affordable prices  more »
  • This market needs better management of how it allocates space for parking and how the vendors display their wares. Its so packed and unclean as a result.  more »

  • Good variety of local produce sold here. The fish and seafood market section could be cleaner. The market now seems too small to accommodate the number of people selling their produce. All in all, can't really complain! :)
  • I'm trying to find the words to describe this market without being disrespectful. Me like!
