I'm not trying to diss the market but in my honest opinion there's nothing special here. I'm reading words like bustling (it wasn't on the Sat I went), large (it's no bigger than a football pitch, maybe two at most) and adrenaline...?? Possibly reflects the...More

Lots of clothing on canvases on the ground. Canvases on top. Lots of people. Noise. People playing music. Be careful where you walk, there's hardly enough space. Quite an experience.

In and outside the marketplace you will find food, vegetables, clothes etc. Even a basket with live pigs! Salespeople are not irritating and give you a chance to look around.
