  • The MERCADO MODELO, located in the avenida mella in the city of santo domingo, has a diversification of attractions for tourists, from percussion items up to the famous bottle alcohol called mama juana, among other things.

  • The place is interesting, but as you enter they begin to overwhelm you with so-called offers, bringing prices down 50% or more, frankly a scam. I recommend visiting nearby stores to buy quieter.

  • Pintoresque local market
  • Something that must be seen. But about the prices.... If you have white shin... Well all will be double price. Anyway this place and the area around are typical. Don't go during the night .too dangerous. To be seen only with the daylight.
  • My favorite market!
  • A craft market of truth

  • It is a place where you can find almost everything. Excellent for if you want to take a souvenir from the Dominican to your acquaintances abroad. Also to find flowers in good price or ingredients of a recipe
