As you explore the market, you'll chat with the locals to learn about their products that they so proudly display.
After the tour you will head back to the host's gorgeous home to begin your hands-on cooking class in a bright, sunny kitchen - and if it's nice weather, you'll enjoy the fruits of your labor in the garden just outside of the kitchen.
