In contrast to many of the touristic highlights in Granada this market is a place where mainly locals go for buying their daily necessities. Fruit and vegetable stalls are rather spread out, but there are sections for women's clothes or meat. The square greenish building...More

Granada's central market is a vital part of the local economy and food chain. It's an authentic place where real people come to sell their produce, fish, meats, etc. everyday. Horse-drawn carts and trucks start arriving from the countryside in the early morning piled high...More

We have been to many central markets in the world, but Granada's is a sad reminder of what once was probably a flourishing mercado. We cruised the market and the building, but did not find any thing to buy. The city needs to invest funds...More

I been to marketplaces around the world. This one is about average. Prices are very fair and they don't try to haggle very much. Not a lot of items to take home just things to live off for this is the market of the locals....More

Down the road from the Mercado Artenesis, the Mercado municipal is more a market for local Masayans. Prices are good, but the selection isn't the best. High on meats and produce, not so much in touristy materials. Stifling heat and humidity makes for anything but...More

There is a "Safeway" style market on the other side of town. This is the opposite, a series of warren like alleys and covered stalls where you can buy everything from raw fish to pots and pans--this is where the locals shop. Noisy, dirty, claustrophobic...More
