  • It’s a wonderful maze full of bags, sculptures, t-shirts, toys, picture frames, paintings, everything you could want! Be prepared to say no and make sure you bargain. You will see a lot of the same thing at every stall and some very unique things. Don’t get lost from your party, it’s a maze inside and you can get turned around easily. It’s a must see, must buy from!
  • It's a short walk from central park and if you're not coming to buy anything (I heard prices are a bit marked up for tourists) at least come for the aesthetic. There's an old but gorgeous building that is the backdrop for this small but beautiful and colorful outdoor market.
