Nice place. Open also during the week

A nice market with fruits and arts. Open not only in Sunday. Good souvenirs to bring home. Has a roof, so good for rainy days.

Market is fun to walk around. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables at a good price. Quite a few aisles of touristy items. Panama isn't as touristy as many countries - so this was about the only place we saw to buy gifts. No t-shirts. Sunday market is supposed to be the biggest day; but all other days of the... More

Lots of opportunity to buy souvenirs. Look around first before buying, as many objects are available at different vendors at different prices, different qualities and a variety of different choices.

We went with one thing in mind: produce. This little market did not disappoint. We picked up yucca, banana, platano, purple peppers, coconut, pineapple, and other stuff. It's conveniently located and inexpensive. For other grocery items there are tiendas and a supermercado or two across the highway. To be honest, I didn't even look at the handicrafts. Focus was entirely... More

I loved it. Especially the flowers and herbs section, and the fact I was able to buy my favorite herb : dill. Very hard to find in Panama. The craft section is also really nice, my favorite - the wooden crafts. Recommended.

We had rented a house in El Valle, so were interested in buying fruit and vegetables. The selection was very good with some unusual items and the prices excellent, so we stocked up. The souvenirs and crafts though were just average. Not nearly as large as other Central American markets and lots of the items looked like the same stuff... More

Sunday evidently is the biggest market of the week, but it was ok at best. Some fruits, vegetables, plants and knick-nacks on the side.

The fruit/produce looked great but mostly tourist kick knacks. If you want a taste of the high country in panama and go to a local market this is fine. Not my wife's or mine thing tough. The area is really cool.

If you are used to large, open-air markets in other countries, this is not one of them. the covered market is divided into 2/3 handicrafts and 1/3 food and plants. It was fun to walk through and get a good idea of what was for sale before starting to shop and negotiate prices--which you should do. As usual, if you... More

If you have the means of transport check this market out. Lots of classic souvenirs to grab at good prices if you can haggle a bit and lots of unique crafts to be had too. Very accessible and lots of good food nearby too.
