  • The places visited, and picturesque environment is foul and dangerous. The food is not good quality at least a Chowder that we call was just bread! We restored it since its appearance was fatal.

  • 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.

  • 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
