Obviously a modern building but still a lot of heart. We bought lots of fruit, wine (no kitchen or we would have bought more), had coffee and a great morning. Go, buy, eat!

Let's hope you are staying at a place where you can cook. You'll want to buy so much. But you can always buy stuffings for sandwiches and fruit. Such a fun atmosphere. Vendors are helpful and appreciative.

A free visit - colourful - fascinating fruit, meat and fish. Worth a wander for an hour - and don't miss the lower floor. Accessible building if you find the right entrance. Fragrant, colourful and tasty.l
