Come here early so you can get first dibs on produce and seafood. Produce look fantastic and they have a few food stalls that was pretty good. I'd definitely come back.

One side of a market is really for locals. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Wish they had one of these where I live! The other side of the market sells clothes and more stuff tourists would buy.
