You can find anything from food to clothes and souvenirs, but it's one of the markets with most hassle in the world. Beware of groups of 'mothers' who ask you to buy them milk and then sell it back to the shop.

A vibrant real local market on one long street selling pretty much everything you would expect to find in an outdoor street market. Dont bring any valuables or wallets as there could be pickpockets. Just bring some cash. It seems to be quite safe.

This is such a charming place...you can find pretty much anything you are looking for foodwise. This is like the must of folklore...but like the open air market, be very careful with money, cameras, bags and purses etc...

I enjoy these types of markets because it isn't tailored to tourists, but everyday people. There are some souvenir vendors, but the majority is groceries and other basic products. The vibe of walking through the spaces is the fun part, and people seem more than...More
