Be part of the noisy crowds so typical of flea
markets. You will be amazed by the bargains offered! Like all the
markets around the world, you can expect to find all kinds of knicks
and knacks, from tourist souvenirs, homewares, costume jewelry,
DVDs, CDs and cassettes to meat, vegetables, seafood, to newsagents
and lottery booths.
To sustain yourselves along the way, you should try
the lcaol delights from the several food and drinks hawkers. Do
not miss the Indian roti prata, dholl pourri, fried samosa and gato
pima, and aloudha (cold drink)!
for your convenience we have the locations and timetables of markets
held on special days of the week.
So check it out and plan your shopping spree!
