Default Flea Market???

There's what looks like a flea market held in town on the way to/from the airport (we always see on Sat's arriving/departing). Does anyone know what this is (called) and/or when it's held (just Sat's? times)???

Thanks!

If you are talking about the one between the grocery stores along the main road, it is a flea market of sorts. We went there to shop the last two trips. They have many vendors, mostly new stuff like you find at the local stores. T-shirts, nick-nacks other souvenirs. Cash only at the ones we bought from as the banks charge them $3 per check they cash. It is open saturday and sunday. If you want a T-shirt or other souvenier, this would be a good place to look. Look at ALL the stalls and get a price before you buy though, because many of them have much the same stuff but different prices.

Don't be afraid to haggle about the price. Some vendors will bend, others hold fast. Half the fun for me.
