Mercado Central

The Mercado Central is an indoor experience market that we shouldn’t miss. This building has been in Santiago since 1872 and is filled with vendors selling fresh produce, meats, candies, souvenirs, and fresh seafood – live crabs, lobsters, mounds of oysters and a variety of fish.

Live music entertains us as we get closer toward the center of the building. Imagine wandering through this huge wrought-iron building listening to the music, smelling the fresh fish, hearing the beautiful Spanish language and eating ice cream.  There are restaurants and fast food vendors in the market and we could stop to try Locos or Chilean Abalone, large edible sea snails.
