Probably the freshest ceviche in Lima - for the true food traveller
Jan 2020
A truly authentic Lima food experience, for those that don't like to travel as tourists. My mother used to take me here in the 70's and 80's for daily groceries, before supermarkets existed in Lima. They used to slaughter live chickens here and then sell you the freshest possible meat, but no longer :/

Very Interesting - Not your North American Market
Oct 2019 • Couples
A very interesting market to walk around and see how things are done in Peru. Lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, etc. Could not believe the chickens and other meats and seafood and the presentation there of, interesting. Busy place, but I would recommend an hour or so for this market. Beautiful place to photograph due to the interesting colours and other sights.

Cheap But Quality Food
Oct 2019 • Solo
There's nothing overly special about it here. it seems to be more for locals rather than tourists. It's mainly just produce, meat and a groceries. The produce selection is really good and cheap. But it would be worthwhile having a look here if you've got the chance
My favourite thing about here is it's an excellent place to get something to eat for a low price. 8 soles for a huge plate of Lomo Soltado and a huge drink of apple juice or 6 soles for chicken and chips.

It's very much a market for locals
Aug 2019
This is a large sprawling market selling pretty much everything and anything a householder may want. As such it is very much aimed at servicing the local population, although there will be many day to day bits that the tourist may find irresistible. It’s a big purveyor of base ingredients to the populace and the many food outlets that draw men like flies at lunchtime. Wouldn’t put it top of my list of things to do, but who doesn’t love a browse round a market?!!

Great selection & quality / buena variedad & calidad

The title says it all there's nothing else to add at the moment 😁
Variety is bigger and cheaper than supermarkets like Vivanda & Metro

See a lot of local produce
Jul 2019 • Couples
Visiting whilst doing a walking tour. It's a local market, no tourist junk for sale here. In one sense it's no different from any other local market but we found it interesting because we got to see a lot of local produce up close that we didn't know about and got to ask lots of questions. Therefore don't go on your own but okay with a guide. So many varieties of potatoes some of which were totally unrecognisable.

Interesting piece of the local culture.
Jul 2019 • Family
This is an easy walk around to see, smell, taste the food culture in Lima. Really well laid out and the people are very friendly and proud of their offerings. Some things in the meat area are not for the faint of heart but really fascinating. Peruvian’s use just about every part of what’s killed which we all found really interesting.

For those seeking a more “authentic” experience.

You probably won’t find a more authentic Peruvian market than this one. Plenty of local shopping for food and other necessities. You are sure to see things that you wouldn’t find in markets in the US!

Makes you want to self cater in Lima!
May 2019 • Couples
We visited this early in the morning.

The place is a haven for foodies. It had vegetable and fruit stalls all gleaming in the Peruvian sunshine.

There were exotic fruits on sale which was offered to taste for free.

There were also fish and chicken, meat stalls selling fresh produce.

A great place to come.
