The floating market of sets up every day of the week from 8 am to 1 pm in the estuary where three canals meet. People with hundreds of boat come to this market to trade their freshly cultivated products like vegetable, rice, fruits and so on in the nearby areas. In order to get fresh products, huge buyers also come here every day.
