Mercado de Rio Piedras

Does anyone know if the Mercado in Rio Piedras is open on Sundays?

It has been a while since I have been there, but when I asked,they said they are closed on Sundays. But a recent article about the market says they are open 7 days/week.

Anyone have experience going on a Sunday?

Anyone know?

La Placita market in Santurce I think is open in Sunday mornings....anyone know (from personal experience) if that is true also?

I live in Rio Piedras but I haven't been to the mercado in a while. If I can I'll drive around the pueblo area and ask.

For what its worth both Rio Piedras and Santurce were open on Sunday when we were there back in March 2011.
