Good place to buy good quality anchovies, scallops. Bustling place. Please bargain for the best prices. I like the place - reminds me of holidays home- as i buy back souvenir packs of the above dried stuff for family & friends back home in my hometown. Visited several times in 2012.

This is a vegetable market which sells vegetables, fruits, dried seafood, cookies and other local delicacy. The prices are much cheaper than the other shops which sell the same product.
