Known locally as simply El Huembes, this vast marketplace is one of the largest in Nicaragua. Mercado Carlos Roberto Huembes also attracts many talented artists.

Other popular goods that make interesting souvenirs include handmade rocking chairs, embroidered clothing and baskets made from pine needles. ”
