El Valle is a small town and this market is small. However, there are a few vendors who have excellent offerings. One in particular has quality molas. I also found some interesting pieces of jewelry hand made from tagua and twine. It's always interesting to...More

The market was enjoyable with many local artists and vendors. The market offered a wide range of locally made or grown products. WE had a nice lunch at a local restaurant. The prices are quite fair, if not cheap. All of the Panamanians we met...More

There is no difference if you come here on a Sunday or any other day. Maybe some more people selling plants but the vegetable and trinket sellers are here every day. Not really a main attraction. Next to the tourist office.

Although we did not go on a Sunday, more venders and artisans contribute to the local market! Their work is absolutely beautiful, and I purchased two handmade Molas! I definitely recommend going to this market during the weekend.

A town in the middle of a dormant volcano about a half hour from the city of Coronado. Beautiful lush trees and plants coming into the area. The market has many handmade items that would make excellent gifts for anyone. A large fruit/vegetable area (if...More
