SANTIAGO | Lastarria is a wonderful barrio in Santiago, known for its creative vibe, art scene, restaurants and bars. Being close to a university and home to many cultural institutions (including the fantastic the Museo Arqueológico de Santiago and the Museo de Artes Visuales) means that there’s an energy in Lastarria that’s uplifting.

When I visited the barrio I was expecting all of the above, but I wasn’t expecting to stumble across a vibrant street market. Every Sunday, Calle José Victorino Lastarria, one of the barrio’s main streets, is taken over by a flea market full of local artisans selling their wares. Arts, crafts, clothing, jewellery, food and more are on offer, and the market is open well into the night.

Besides the flea market you’ll find the area’s usual array of retail and dining options too. I’ve written about the food and drink of Lastarria elsewhere (check out Bocanáriz, Liguria, and Chipe Libre for excellent food and drinks, and Bloom Specialty Coffee for coffee), but if it’s the market that’s drawn you here make sure you check out Mestiza Producciones. It opened in 2017 and provides a space for emerging artisans and entrepreneurs to showcase their wares. There’s lots of interesting and unique items to look at and buy.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
