Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The "Huembe" as locals call it is a one stop shop for almost anything. The Mercado Roberto Huembe is not to be confused with the Mercado Oriental, which is said to have a lesser reputation. You can buy almost anything at the Huembe market. Fruits, vegetables, souvenirs, typical clothing, makeup, etc. You can get a haircut, keys made, vegetables, and a fresh chicken all in one place. The Huembe is generally safe. I'm unsure of the cleanliness and safety now due to COVID-19, but many locals shop here at the Huembe without any issues whatsoever.

Outside of the Mercado Roberto Huembe they do money exchanges and sell animals as well. There is a drive through street outside of the Huembe where many sell dogs of all breeds. I can't vet for the health of the animal, but there are numerous dog breeds there from terriers, German shepherds, Huskies, poodles, to chihuahuas and so forth. Outside of the market on another street they exchange cordobas to dollars or dollars to cordobas. Some of the guys are known to have better rates than others. You just drive up and exchange the money. It is safe. We did this numerous times.

Busy place, like any other market, safer than The Oriental Market, visited the Barber shop, exchange US dollars for Cordobas, bought fruits, candies and shoes, and found 2 handcrafted traditional masks for our collection, good place to visit.

On holiday over the weekend I couldn’t wait to see checked into the Hilton Princess, and threw my running gear on to jog over the market., how fun! I love it when there’s a street market to check out, and I can interact with the local people and practice my Spanish. This market, like 1 or 2 others, is packed full of woodwork, keepsakes, ornaments and clothes - all the usual goodies to remember your trip by!

If you're looking to mosey around a market, this one is a good choice: it's not too overwhelming and it's laid out thoughtfully, and still definitely geared toward tourists. I find Mercado Orientale really overwhelming because of its size (and its danger apparently), so Huembes is a good place to get kitschy artisan style knick knacks and souvenirs while still having the "authentic" (but still touristy) experience. We bought a family-sized double woven hammock for $65 but that was after a long bargaining session, then leaving, then returning. For plastics, fans, etc., I find that the price (for us gringos) is exactly the same as MaxiPali.. so for those household items, just go to MaxiPali and save the bargaining session. If you're bringing kids, keep the stroller in the car and carry them.

If you are a Nicaraguan, you will find it convenient, but if you are a tourist, it will be confusing, because, it is a big market without signs, and overcrowded, so, if you need handcraft product to take back home, you will need that somebody take you to the right place or you will need to practice your Spanish and ask directions.
Handcraft prices are good but you can also do bargain, they have a wide variety of options there, some vendor will speak a little bit of English (enough to be able to sell).
Security is good, but as I said before, it is overcrowded. Sometime you will find kids asking for money.

They have wheelchair access, but it is hard to walk with so many people, so, you can imagen how hard will be with wheelchair.
They have bathroom but they are hard to find (need to ask), you will pay between 5-10 cordobas to be able to use it.

Much nicer than the Oriental. Huembes had everything that the Oriental has and more. It is so much cleaner and nicer. Less people and easier to maneuver through. If felt a lot saver than Oriental. I will definitely use this market in the future, over the others.

Gringos will pay more than double if you don't know how to bargain. Fortunately, my wife is Latina so we got some good deals. The place has everything from shoes to souvenirs and is pretty crowded. Think flea market or swap meet but all Central American style.

If you're a tourist and need your share of souvenirs then this is the place in Managua. Go to the big building where there's local food and you'll experience just about any Nicaraguan dish at relatively cheap prices, an average price per meal is about 3 dollars. Don't be shy and talk to the locals, they're friendly and willing to guide you or give you directions.
