  • I love to go places that reflect the life of the people. This Central food market allows you to go and buy all kinds of things and live a ma´s interesting movement. I was eager to buy everything what was seen by the appearance and prices, but we were in a hotel, so I just bought some spices and fruits. Excelenet quality and great prices

  • It is a classic port city market, picturesque but nothing out of the ordinary. On the lower floor selling absolutely everything, fish, fruits, vegetables, etc. In the upper floor has a good variety of restaurants to eat something, the only thing that I didn't really get heavy and are uncomfortable giving you menus to eat where they work. I understand that it is a working method that they found but really does not want to eat there. In the end, I ended up sitting in the restaurant where she worked as a young man with whom I could speak and became really interested me in what they offered. Food, cold Marshal recommendation is very rich, fresh and very generous.

  • We went to lunch 4 adults Saturday 30 Dec, second floor, without bad smells, much screaming, locals some well concerned about the presentation, worst when it comes to eating, bear in mind that hitch is the menu, worse when it comes to see the menu prices are like boat SALVAVID ADES of VALPARAÍSO, expensive, those we are a market prices, and the quality can I varié between local, I recommend that if units willing to pay between 10,000 thousand to 12,000 thousand per person, go to an established restaurant with air, waiters, linda vista etc.

  • I love bustling markets and this one did not dissapoint. Tons of fruits and vegetables and spices. If you walk here from the main tourist areas you can take a path to see the giant four season murals.
  • The best farmer's market, cheap and full of everything. They sell kale yum yum.
  • 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

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.
