It was really exciting to visit a market and find it clean, coming from an English speaking background is challenging due to the commonly used language, but still the experience was wonderful, interesting variety of things and great atmosphere

The market has it all from used clothes and shoes to new local and international clothing and home furnishings. The locals are warm and welcoming. Enjoy seeing locals go about thier day, hauling firewood, water, and treasures to sell.
