Mercado de San Francisco

Without a doubt, the city's oldest market

Despite looking like a modern market, which wouldn't be out of place in an avant-garde and cosmopolitan city, this centre has been here since the early 19th century. What's more, most of the stalls have been run by the same families for over a hundred years; families that will treat you to the warmest and most welcoming service and advice. Although the market has been modernised over the years, it still has a strong traditional feel about it. At its 123 stalls, you'll find all the most typical local and national gastronomical products, as well as many opportunities to sample dishes prepared in a rustic, authentic way such as mote, llapingachos, yahuarlocro or caldo de gallina. You'll also find artisan goods and traditional products that are native to the local area. Ideal for finding the perfect gift!
