El Mercado Central

I really shouldn’t have stepped into the Mercado Central right after breakfast. No because I was grossed out by all the meat on display but because the food looked delicious, and I was full!

San José’s central market is located right on the busy Avenida Central and occupies an entire block. Outside, people sell fruits, veggies and lottery tickets and the latter seem to be by far the most popular stall.

Inside, it’s a mix of pura vida souvenirs, bags and accessories, meat and spices and sodas—these small food stalls offering set lunches for a small price. Locals seem to favour them and they were getting busy close to noon.

  1. Ma chérie
    Tes photos sont magnifiques.
    Que de choses ! Que de couleurs ! Un marché comme je les aime.
    Plusieurs fois par semaine, je vais pouvoir voyager moi-aussi au Costa Rica… et chasser pour un moment la grisaille d’un mois de février en France.
    Prends soin de toi. Repose-toi bien. Nous t’aimons très fort.
