Mercado de Artesanías 5 de Mayo

Avenida Central

The Mercado de Artesanías 5 de Mayo is best known for crafts such as painted ceramic bowls, woven baskets, textiles and dolls in traditional outfits, though you can also pick up touristy souvenirs. It’s the place to shop for a panama hat in Panama City (even if they are actually imported from Ecuador) or that hammock you’ve always wanted.
