Wow! It’s a fabulous farmer’s market. I don’t think I have ever seen the variety of fruits and vegetables that we saw there! Also lots of craft items. Worth a stop.

One side of a market is really for locals. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Wish they had one of these where I live! The other side of the market sells clothes and more stuff tourists would buy.
