We go there every time. It is the local market where they sell local handmade items. You can walk there easily from the ship by walking along the waterfront. It is something that should not be missed. <G>

No problem with anything except of course any illegal drugs or endangered species. Also you could not bring back Cuban cigars. Yes it is legal in Canada BUT yu have to go through the USA first and you cannot bring them into the USA. <G>
