30 reviews of Central Market (Mercado Central)

Worth a visit

A visit to San Jose wouldn't be complete without visiting the labyrinthine central market for a spot of shopping. This market is popular with locals, and apart from the odd t-shirt stall, there are hardly any souvenirs on offer. You're bound to get completely lost here, but don't worry - it just means that you'll find some surprises! It's also one of the cheapest places to eat in the city, with bars and taverns scattered around the area.

Good spot for street/stall food or raw goods

Great

Good spot for street/stall food or raw goods. There are a lot of souvenir places, but most are repetitive. Overall, a fun place to spend an hour and a cheap spot for basic groceries if your Spanish is good.
