  • Is a popular, typical of the local market. I took a juice that was very good, but I thought you charged an exaggerated price for being a tourist. Anyway, rolled a chorinho (that's left in the Blender). I had the ceviche and it was very good. I wouldn't say it was cheap, but the portion came tired and it was delicious.

  • The Tirso de Molina market is a market of fruits, vegetables, sweets. The location is not great and not beautiful. What delighted me was the colour of fruits.

  • Today after seeing on tv we start to eat into the market, although the food is very rich and cheap, it's quite uncomfortable to eat with pigeons flying over your head, in fact was more concerned that I do not defecaran on the table. All well!

  • A good place to buy fresh vegetables and thing you don't ussually find on regular markets, but if you want better prices, go to the older buildings heading north. You are welcome.
  • The vegetables are fresh, you will find an exciting variate of fruits and vegetables. Yes a bit dirty and smelly but is worth it to find exotic herbs.
  • If you want a great "Picada" come to león de Judá" great place, cheap cheap cheap place, taste food... if you have a hangover come a get a soup ajjajajaja
  • Good variety, quality and prices not so good.
  • I found this much more interesting than Mercado Central just across the river. It had great, cheap food and drinks, in addition to great produce. AUD $3/kilo avocados, $2/kilo strawberries, cheese, deli meats etc.
