The lively atmosphere of this iconic tourist attraction has endeared the market to locals for only 2 years; however it continues to grow every week with more and more people wanting to build their businesses by promoting themselves at The Big Pineapple. The market is best known for its huge variety of fresh and local produce. Virtually 50% of the area is dedicated to the sale of fresh produce, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, chicken, seafood and delicatessen products. The remainder of the market is used for variety and specialty goods, with mid- morning being the most popular time for this category.
