Definitely come here for an authentic South American farmer's market experience. There are so many fruit and vegetable choices, as well as meats and cheeses. You will also find all kinds of household items here. Lunch is inexpensive and tasty.

Wandered into the Mercado today while out walking. The sights, sounds and smells were amazing. We ended up having lunch there after stumbling upon the pork plate offerings. Delicious!
