They say that you can learn a lot about people from their market. Probably Rick Stein said it. As it was, the tail end of Hurricane Stephanie had been battering the northwest for ages and most of the coast was under Red Alert when we visited. The consequences of which left whole halls devoid of the fresh fish which draws... More

The Mercado has a lovely facade and once you enter there are some "upmarket" eateries but if you keep walking to the back of the building you will find some "basic" eateries which are much cheaper in price. They offer lovely cooked fresh fish and accompaniments. If you dont get a chance to visit dont stress!

The market isn't as flash as La Boqueria in Barcelona but the food is every bit as good. You can buy produce and have it cooked... More

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... More
