The main reason to come to the market is to see how the train passes by and how the stalls clean up before and after the train passes by. The train passes by the market every day at 6:20am, 8:30am, 9:00am, 11:10am, 11:30am, 2:30pm, 3:30 pm, 5:40 pm. This is such a unique place, it’s definitely worth checking out!
