It's a cool marketplace with knick knacks and trinkets. My group loved the dried/fried okra and we made two trips just to get that. Nice way to see local art.

I have been there several times and have never seen a wheelchair rental available. I did bring my mother here on her rollator and she had no problem getting around.
