Nice place. Lovely handmade stuff. Not cheap nor pricey. Can get souvenir. All in USD. Closer to Plaza hotel (2km)

These shopkeepers are super polite. Not in the least pushy. They don't like to bargain but will budge a little. We went there on New Years Day and a few shops were open. Nice East Timorese artifacts.

A bit mind boggling array of Tais. The must have souvenir from Timor. Everything is hand made. Lots of other handicrafts on sale. Don't forget to bargain for a good price.
The crafts in Timor-Leste are different to those you will get elsewhere in Asia. The qualty is very good and prices are reasonable. The woven goods are of very high quality and have interesting patterns and colours
We enjoyed looking around this little market, and bought several items for a reasonable cost. The next day we visited a place where there were ladies making the tais, and we found the prices there to be more expensive than at this market.
