Enjoyed the different vendors, eat RED corn on the cob, fresh watermelon, picked up a few things. A great leisure was to spend a few hours.

All kinds of things to eat, buy for family, friends, and yourself (souvenirs, hats, shoes, trinkets, toys, and clothing). Nice variety. No pressure, friendly shopkeepers.

The artisan market in SMA is the place where you can find anything you might want from souvenirs to finely crafted items for you to decorate you home or for your wardrobe. We went back several times during our stay.
