I arrived at the market at 8 and the sellers were finishing setting up. They took such pride in their stalls and everything was laid out beautifully. The range of produce was incredible. It made me wish I was staying in a place with a kitchen so I could buy food to cook. Beautiful building too.

Don't miss this place. The building itself is worth the visit. It's filled with hundreds of food vendors and the sites and smells are a treat for the senses. I wish I could have stayed longer -- but even a little sampling is memorable.

It was a memorable and authentic experience in its local Market. I marvelled at how ancient people put great effort in decorating the market. It was very organised per sectors. I enjoyed comparing prices and make purchasing. Love empanadas and Zumo (different kinds of juices). MUST GO!

We visited the market as we always enjoy visiting these markets. The market is large with high ceilings with impressive stain glass each end. This a real market i.e. main items for sale here are fish, meat, fruit vegetables,spices etc. The central bar is also with a visit within the market.
