More crowded and disorganized than markets I've visited in other places in Latin America, and there are no local handicrafts, but worth a visit. Part of the market is inside an old, crumbling building and part of the market lines the streets. We felt safe...More

In contrast to many of the touristic highlights in Granada this market is a place where mainly locals go for buying their daily necessities. Fruit and vegetable stalls are rather spread out, but there are sections for women's clothes or meat. The square greenish building...More

Granada's central market is a vital part of the local economy and food chain. It's an authentic place where real people come to sell their produce, fish, meats, etc. everyday. Horse-drawn carts and trucks start arriving from the countryside in the early morning piled high...More

We have been to many central markets in the world, but Granada's is a sad reminder of what once was probably a flourishing mercado. We cruised the market and the building, but did not find any thing to buy. The city needs to invest funds...More

I been to marketplaces around the world. This one is about average. Prices are very fair and they don't try to haggle very much. Not a lot of items to take home just things to live off for this is the market of the locals....More

The municipality should just restore this market and make it a tourist market like Masaya and move the market to a more suitable location. It is a working market but very inadequate. Some locals might come here but not many who opt for the more...More

We had a great time at the market, you'll find lunch, food, clothes, house stuff,... and inside the building you can get the feeling you could get lost, but it's not to big. BUT in the Calle Atravesada/Comercio there are much more shops - inside...More

Down the road from the Mercado Artenesis, the Mercado municipal is more a market for local Masayans. Prices are good, but the selection isn't the best. High on meats and produce, not so much in touristy materials. Stifling heat and humidity makes for anything but...More
