  • Here's the lowdown on the mercado central; Breakfast; get some bread from the inside area by the fruit stands ask for "caspitas", get some fresh and delicious cream "nata" it comes in a little cup for 7bs. from the fresh milk area, next to the cheese vendors. Lunch; chorizo chuquisaqueno sandwich - at the "7 lunares" spot inside the market, or head cheese sandwich - dont freak! take the sample it is awesome! Late night, try tojori con leche and bunuelos.
  • One of the most important markets in Chuquisaca where you can find almost anything to eat in large amounts and cheap prices. The bad thing however is the lack of hygiene and terrible state of the toilets.
  • This is an interesting cultural experience of you've never seen a market in a developing country before. You can buy lots of fresh veggies and fruits. The best part is the route of stalls selling fruit juices for 5 bolivianos.
  • 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.
  • So much colour. Cultral experience!
