Nice place to check out in the heart of the shopping area; great fun conversing with the locals and checking out what's offered. Many other shops nearby too. Cruise ships offer free shuttles in the morning.

Fresh fruit galore...so much variety. Plus there is also a market of goods like t-shirts, jewelry, etc. Best place to pick up those souvenirs to take back home for the family.

This is held on a Wednesday and Saturday and well worth a visit. Spent a great couple of hours speaking to the locals, buying coffee, chocolate, t shirts and other momentos.

While traveling to the volcano on a Wednesday, we decided to check out this Farmer's Market. It was a great idea, as this one had a very wide selection of produce, with many more fruits than some FMs on other parts of the island. If...More
