Markets like this are a great place to buy handicrafts, and we often do. We are careful, however, about buying food on the streets in cultures where we are not sure of the compatibility with our immune system and bacteria tolerances.

Hi Dave - Street vendors selling food everywhere in the world should be avoided. I've seen too many undercover videos of their practices.
