It’s fine. You can get some nice cheeses, fruits/veggies and a few other custom goods. It’s nothing special if you’re accustomed to typical Latin market days. Even my little ones were underwhelmed. It’s definitely focused on the expat retirees catching up and socializing. But again...More

This is the place where all the old leathery, US American expats come to meet and greet. As in every place they colonise around the world, they do not care for neither local language nor manners, and as everywhere, they scream out their trivial chit...More

The market has a good selection of items to choose from. It is definitely not just retirees selling things as one person said. There are Panamanians selling handmade items. There is an assortment of trinkets, souvenirs, food, medicinal items, fresh vegetables, etc. The market is...More

Went by the Tuesday Market to see what was there and was expecting a bit of a touristy feel, but there were lots of local products and services, not just gifts to bring home. In addition, since we were scouting the area for relocation, everyone...More

I was GRANDPAcking in Boquete for 2.5 weeks. I pooped down to the Tuesday Market a couple of times. It's just across the bridge (you will see it on your right). A pleasant river-side setting. Organic stalls and nick-nacks.

It is just west of the downtown just as you cross the bridge over the Caldera river. It will be on your right just as you get to the end of the bridge.
