We came here expecting a market of fresh produce and meat and fish. Instead we found a bunch of restaurants serving up meat, meat, meat, all competing for our business. We read on line that if you are desperate for a place to eat, come...More
We love Markets and Mercado Central in Santiago is not the exception... If you like fresh fish, this is your place. There are also restaurants inside. The market is for free so if you are close, give the market 30 mins, you will enjoy the...More
