Small market but the growers bring in beautiful fruit, vegetables and flowers. I was especially impressed with fresh ginger and the flowers. Take your own bag.

Lots of fruit, mangoes, dragonfruit, papaya, lychees ... yum, yum, yum. Cut dragonfruit in half and freeze overnight. Ice cream like, but it's fruit. Also bought a flower arrangement for $5 and it lasted a week and a half!
