SANTIAGO | Mercado Central de Santiago is Santiago’s historic Central Market and has been operating as such since opening in 1872. It’s a beautiful building with a striking cast-iron roof and supporting structure, which was made by Glasgow-based R Laidlaw & Sons.

Food wise, the market is known for its fresh fish, with a diverse selection of seafood from across South America delivered here each day. As well as fresh seafood, there are a variety of vendors selling souvenirs and handicrafts, along with cooked and cold seafood dishes like paella and ceviche. Outside, you’ll find numerous vendors selling fresh fruit and vegetables.

Mercado Central de Santiago is admittedly quite touristy these days and many of the food vendors to cater to this market, which can be seen in the quality and the price of their offerings. If it’s fresh seafood you’re after it’s a great place to shop but if you want something to eat, avoid the restaurants in the center and join the locals at the eateries on the outer rim of the market. And if you don’t want to buy anything, still visit as walking through the market is an experience in itself.
