“Everything is so fresh!”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

You can smell the Mercado even before you get there - the fruit, the vegetables, the fish.
The people are so friendly and love to talk about their products, of course it helps if you speak Spanish. But even if you don't, the products speak for themselves. We saw bacalao (codfish) of all sizes, beef, chicken, hams, flowers.
There is a stall that will prepare for you the fish that you purchase right there.
The setting is very charming also, in the older part of the city, with nice places around to get a coffee or a snack.
It's a place not to be missed.
