A nice safe place to walk around, including the surrounding areas of town. The market is only about two blocks off of the downtown area if you can call it that, central for lack of a better word. Lots of varieties of vegetables etc and all very orderly and very clean.

Cartago has lots to offer visitors. Only a short 1 hr drive from San Jose. The Mercado Central is a must. After shopping and sampling local foods, check out the Cathedral of Our Lady of Los Angeles of Cartago. A huge church with a magnificent interior. There's a gallery in the back of the building (outside and below deck) displaying the icon of the Virgin. If you have extra time, take an Uber to the Botanical Garden for a relaxing time among the many beautiful tropical plants and flowers.

We stumbled upon this when we were walking around. Great food and other stalls. The thing that we really liked was that there was no one bothering us just because we were tourists. People were very kind in answering our questions, even though our Spanish is limited and they spoke no English.

If you want a flavor of Costa Rica, and I mean that in every sense of the word, then you need to visit this market. Most of it is indoors, so do not let bad weather hold you back. So much to see, do and purchase. It is tight inside, so keep an eye on your personal belongings.

Also, visiting Cartago, you must visit the Mercado Central, a huge variety of agricultural products; vegetables, fruits etc and excellent prices.
