  • Whether during the day or at night: many booths, good fruit and vegetables and hand work. In the upper countless food stalls with all typical, what distinguishes Bolivia. And the fürwenig money.

  • The Mercado Central is absolutely class each day and night time to get cheap and tasty food. The comedores are visited mostly by locals and offering everything from breakfast to Almuerzo and Cena to the night snack. Fresh fruit juices and fruit salads are to have. Buy a can of course everything.

  • 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.
