At the market you'll find about 20 produce vendors, several clothing places, a plasticware area, cd's, prepared food stops.
The produce vendors are friendly and have good advice about food preparation. We bought a "chocho" (chayote)--it's a local vegetable--much like a young mango that wants to be a cucumber...can be prepared either in soups or sliced thin and added to tomatoes for a salad. We opted for the salad idea. Pale green, not much taste but crunchy, it absorbed the oil and vinegar salad dressing I had prepared and added a nice crunch to the salad. We also added it to our homemade pico de gallo--yum!
