“Haggle for traditional Nicaraguan crafts and furniture, eat tasty local specialties or simply soak up the lively atmosphere of the Mercado Carlos Roberto Huembes. 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. See paintings, clay sculptures, wood carvings and artwork made from shells. Browse the craft shops for a traditional Nicaraguan hammock. They are made from thick cotton and are one of Nicaragua’s most famous products. Other popular goods that make interesting souvenirs include handmade rocking chairs, embroidered clothing and baskets made from pine needles. ”
