It’s common to find ceramics, artworks, furniture and fixture, and other kinds of arts and crafts in the area. There are also some who offer gourmet food as well as jams, preserves, cookies, and candies. The market is open at 8 in the morning and closes at 2:30 You may want to take note of the weather, though, as the market is not open if it gets really rainy.
