  • A visit not to be missed where you can meet the colors, flavors and smells of Sucre. Recommend taste the chorizo and the Mondongo.

  • A good site to eat cheap or take some juices of fruits very good. Many jobs of all kinds and great atmosphere.

  • Great selection of fresh fruit and veg. Perfect for cooking a veggie meal when you're in Sucre. Be careful to negotiate prices. Don't accept the first price - you may be paying a gringo tax.
  • Very big and colorful market. A lot of different types of food. Many areas available to order and eat on site.
  • One of my favourite markets in South America. They have food day and night (try Api and a pastry for breakfast). The fruit juices are great and the fruit salads are insane
  • Definitely one of the nicer major city Central Markets in Bolivia. Prices are only slightly higher than those in Mercado Campesino. It is, of course, an outdoor market in a developing country. With that in mind, hanging slabs of beef and pork and whole chicken carcasses out in the open won't seem out of the ordinary. And after a while you'll stop noticing all the dogs wandering around. The vendors are friendly, although some seem to be jaded to the presence of foreigners.
  • El Mercado Central is the best place to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It is also the recommended place to have tasty authentic Bolivian food. E. G.: Sopa de Mais for 5 Bolivianos or several local lunches for 10 to 18 Bolivianos. For dessert I would recommend fresh made fruit salad for 8 to 12 Bolivianos.
