Mercado Central - Market Santiago - Chile

A major fixture in Chilean society, the Mercado Central may be touristy, but rest assured that the tourists are visiting for good reason. Located in a lovely steel art nouveau building, it has much more ambiance than many markets in Latin America.


The major product sold in this market is seafood, in particular fresh fish. The aisles are lined and piled with stacks of fish, filleted fish and whole fish, big fish and small fish...a veritable Dr. Seussian display of fish. The many restaurants in and nearby the market allow visitors to sample what they see. Mercado Central is a great place to take a sense-assaulting morning stroll, then catch lunch before heading off to another site in Santiago.
