Open each Wednesday, this colorful ethnic market is set against the backdrop of a magnificent mountainous landscape, surrounded by lush farmland, rice fields, and pine plantations, as well as the mighty Chay River. Along with handmade crafts and clothing, the market sells all manner of food, and the local cuisine can even be washed down with the region’s very own wine.
