If you don't like crowds, go during the weekdays for a chill grocery shopping experience. But if you don't mind crowds and all the festivities, go on weekends for the best experience. There are different events being celebrated on the weekends.

Lots of fresh fruit and food stalls. We went there 3 times and tried different things including the strawberry jelly donuts that were recommended. They were hot and yummy! Besides food they sell lots of souvenir types of things, nothing too exciting.

If you’re caravanning of in a self contained unit, this is the place to shop. All fresh seafood, meat poultry, vege’s available cheap. Also usual array of market clothes stalls and nick nack oddities. Reserve yourself a few hrs to get around it all.

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
