This is one the world's great markets. It is the No1 Food Market in the world as per National Geographic in April 2012. There is so much to see, taste and discover. Watch my video and then do a visit to this amazing place.
A must see is the Carousel Bakery to taste of their world famous peameal bacon sandwich, on Saturday morning you may expect some lineups, they can sell as many as 2600 sandwiches on a busy Saturday.
