In addition to the Central Market and Guadalupe Farmers' Market, another great option for the vegetables and especially the abundance of sometimes exotic tropical fruit is the Mercado del Registro Civil (Civil Registry Market) right downtown. Here produce stands hawk their wares alongside jewelers, inexpensive eateries, and more. Another well known institution is the Borbón Market, just northeast of the Central Market, where tropical fruit especially abounds - some you've heard of (mango, papaya, avocado, guava, cashew fruit) and plenty you may not have (zapote, carambola, pejivaye, maracuyá, guanábana, carambola). A third is the Mercado Paso de la Vaca at Avenida 7 and Calle 2, whose produce stands have been recently fairly renovated.
