The Mercado is a fun experience even if you can't find that bargain you're looking for. Don't be embarrassed to bargain with the "shop" keepers. Enjoy the cultural experience for what it is and enjoy the music and the food...and coffee.

The Mercado was so much fun to browse through. From the outside it looks like only one stand but it is extensive. Basically, as mercados tend to be, the items are overpriced, but some people are willing to bargain and some are not. I bought...More

My most recent visit was very quick. Instead of 50 or so stands which is what they had at the beginning, they had now about 20 and the offer was poor. KM 0 is reaching its end as we speak.

Spent a couple of hours at the market. Chilling, listening to soft music, trying different things to eat. Playground in the outskirts to enjoy with the children and a great sun. Really enjoyed my Saint Valentines morning with those I love.

Small selection of products and not a lot of vendors... Seemed more like a place to meet friends for a light meal than a Feria Agricultura... The cheese was good.. never stayed for a meal at one of the several venues..

Not only do you get organic coffee, fruits and veggies, you also get organic chicken and eggs. Parking is easy ( in Avenida Escazu ) - and you don't have to drive all the way downtown.
