Depending on the time of day when you come to this square, you'll see different scenarios, which are all equally charming.

Plaza del Mercado (Market Square)

Santurce Market.

The 'Plaza del Mercado', also known as the 'Placita de Santurce' which can be accessed by 'calle Dos Hermanos' (Dos Hermanos Street), is swarmed by visitors both during the day and at night, and has different items on offer for every occasion. In the mornings, you can wander around the traditional market stalls where farmers voice the lowest prices of their fruit and vegetables, accompanied by the music of some street musician who takes advantage of the good turnout of people and cigarette traders. In the restaurants that border the 'Plaza del Mercado', you can try traditional recipes such as the 'alcapurrias' (stuffed croquettes) or the 'bacalaíto' (crispy fried cod). And when night falls, this place is reconverted into the main place of dancing, 'shots' and a party between karaokes and salsa music, so if you want to have a few drinks and listen to some live music, this is your place.
