Nothing special. Local market. Good place to buy souvenirs. Don't see the reason to buy produce - same stuff and prices at grocery stores. We bought chicken - put away to the fridge, took it out next day - had a spoiled smell, ended up throwing it away. All the meats just hang above the counters with flies all over. We tried dried shrimps and fish - waaaay too salty. Good variety of local cheese - Panela was great. But you can buy it at any grocery store.

This is an open-air market in the downtown area that couldn’t be more different than being in the Hotel Zone (or “little Las Vegas” as I refer to it). Mercado 23 is smaller than the better-known Mercado 28 and is less geared to tourists, but there are still plenty of stalls to find souvenirs (t-shirts, key chains, sea shells etc.) and at better prices than at Mercado 28 and definitely less expensive than buying in the Hotel Zone. I bought a beautiful seashell wind chime for $5US, for example. If you don’t speak Spanish, I wouldn’t really recommend this market, because I didn’t encounter anyone who spoke English. Besides the souvenir stands there are various food vendors and tiny places to eat if you want to try it. I was really glad that we decided to visit here. We felt completely safe walking around here. We used our Waze GPS to find the place and found parking outside with no problem.

No one harasses you to buy anything. It's a little hard to find. We ate at a restaurant there that was great and cheap. Bought a few trinkets. Being able to speak spanish here definitely a plus.
