Try to avoid specific timings because some times it is unbelievable... More

For those of you that does their own cooking, you will find the freshest seafood and fruits here that is definitely less expensive then getting it from the store.

Good time to visit this place is after 4pm, thats time when the boats bring fishes for the market so you can see also unloading of the fishes.

I was amazed at the variety and volume at both markets. Once you get used to the smell of the fish, its all good... We went there the day... More

Off the beaten path... You do not need to go early. We were there at 11AM, and it was full. Straight opposite to the metro exit (just follow the pedestrians). No need to cross the big road on the left. Nice not frozen fish, also dried ones. People are offering their products, no matter you are a tourist. Typical market,... More
