This local market also is the location of the famous short film “Central Market” which toured a number of prodigious film festivals around the world and won different awards. the film is about a boy who works his afternoons at the local market carrying groceries and delivering produce and is always searching for that quick buck to be made. He finds his opportunity to make some ‘serious cash’ by trying to milk a small goat at a nearby pen.
