  • Love it! One can find almost anything one needs (food wise) there. Prices are quite low, definitely cheaper than the supermarket. The place is a very large shed (almost like a huge hangar), full produce stalls. One can find almost any type of vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, animal food, meats, cheese, and some types of hardware. The place has lots of salesmen chanting out their discounts of the day, and overall is very folkloric. One should definitely go there while visiting Santiago, either to purchase things or to get the vibes of a very lively market!
  • Great spot to check out the local life of the city where everyone comes to get their local produce, meat & poultry, etc. Tons of food stalls serving up cooked foods at fantastic prices as well. Large space and not super crowded although the inside has many corridors so be sure to not get lost in the labyrinth. Lots of areas are covered which makes it a fantastic place to take refuge from the sun.
  • Awesome place, lots of cheap products and delicious food. Strongly recommend if you want the Chilean feria experience.
  • Incredible selection of produce, for great prices! Vendors are super friendly. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Here you can find anything to prepare a nice meal that you can dream of in Chile
