Things to Do

- There are also vendors selling other locally made products such as soap, insect repellents, and lip balms. Pets are not allowed in the market due to health code regulations but you can always purchase dog treats from one of the stalls.
- Do you need flowers for a formal dinner, wedding, or to simply brighten someone's day? Visit the flower stalls and choose from the beautiful blooms. Plus they arrange lovely bouquets too.
