Looking for the most traditional market in town? You've found it and you will not be disappointed!
The main market in town.
Located on Avenida Baralt, this is undoubtedly the most important market in the city, the most traditional and also the main food supply center of Caracas. Inaugurated in 1951, it houses countless stalls organized by products: meat, fish, cheeses, prepared dishes and even candy. It is highly recommended to stop and look (and taste) Venezuelan fresh cheeses (telita, Guyanese, hand, palmita...) and other culinary specialties. However, it is also possible to get a number of typically European products made popular by Italian, French and Spanish immigrants. Although it's not tourist oriented, or perhaps because of this, it's worth visiting this market to appreciate the vast gastronomic variety of Venezuela and to have a chance to enjoy all kinds of home-style products.
