  • Very typical place. Place here you can buy fruits, vegetables and related things. On the second floor there are the so called "picadas". Being in this place you'll feel the sense of being in a port city. Some poeple may find this place a bit dirty.
  • Ate lunch here and probably the rudest, worst service I've ever had. Maybe that's part of the whole "mercado"experience, but the prices are outrageous for what you get (regular traditional food) with a side of fat, grumpy waiter.
  • Typical place, old and traditional. You will find all kinds of vegetables. In the second floor there are "picadas" to eat at affordable prices
  • Eiffel designed this building. Restaurants on 2nd floor. Great prices.
  • The local food market where locals go to shop. Lots of local flavor, colors and food. They have good seafood restaurants (and the banos) on the second floor. The the other original market was damaged by the last earthquake and it now closed. This market is easy to get to by walking or the local bus. Google maps will tell you what bus and where to catch it. On Saturdays there is a fun local informal antique market in nearby O'Higgins Plaza

Where to stay in Valparaiso

Since its inscription on the World Heritage List in 2002, Valparaiso tourism has experienced a meteoric rise. The city now offers a wide range of accommodations, especially budget hostels and mid-range hotels and inns. Cerro Alegre, a hill just to the west of the city center, offers perhaps the largest range of options and looks out over the bustling port. Stay in the friendly neighborhood of Cerro Concepcion to enjoy the best of Valparaiso's cafe culture.
