Very cute little shop in the mall, but much pricier than the local markets. If you just have a few minutes to look around, they have almost everything together in one place.

Very large diverse souvenir store in a less than interesting shopping center. Good as a one stop shop on way to airport to get the a few locally produced items. Prices obviously a little higher than local market but reasonable.
