Not sure how truly "local" this market is - when we were there it was thronged with groups of tourists. Lots to see & smell - fresh fruit & veg, seafood, meat, pasta, groceries, tourist souvenirs. Lots of stalls piled high with goods. A riot...More

Great marketplace! This is the best place to buy quality fruit at good prices. They also have good seafood and other things such as a variety of nuts.

This market is easier to navigate than the huge Mercado Central and it has most of what you need. There are places to eat inside the market and around the market. I bought a ripe guanabana (soursop) which I took home and enjoyed tremendously.

I usually go to the markets for fruits, nuts, and cheap delicious lunch. This place got everything that I am looking for. It is very close to the Expensive Miraflores. A great option for inexpensive and authentic meals and stuff. I have been here many...More

It was ok, but I was expecting more variety and the place to be a bit tidier. I wasn't impressed. I wouldn't recommend it. I love going to local markets, but this one wasn't my cup of tea.
