This craft market is held on Sunday's from 9-12am (sensible tourist hours, not like many that start at 6 am and are over by 10). There were some very pretty things on the stalls when I saw it in May, though only a few of them. I'm told there is a lot more in the winter.
What to buy: Souveniers.
What to pay: $10+
