Interesting but just more and more of the same. Many many basket weaving stalls tons of jewelry and decorations that help keep your house cluttered. Over and over really needed a beer bar.

I was hoping for local crafts. You did find some but mostly you found items you could buy at a local flea market.

The city market, located on Market Street, is an easy 13 minute walk from the cruise ship terminal. The market is inside an old warehouse type building. Sellers have set up tables along the sides of the building with a wide aisle between the tables....More
