We were looking for a seafood market. My wife saw Mercado Municipal discussed on a (sailboat) cruiser's blog. When we found it (lots of one-way streets), we found inside the building a collection of seafood and meat markets, vegetable and fruit markets, dry and canned...More

I will admit if the food section was not closed for renovation it may have been better. The market is dark and smelly, and yes we have been to many municipal markets in Mexico. There was the meat and fish stalls and vegatables but the...More

We went to kill some time and we weren't disappointed. Nice shops and super friendly people. We ate at the luncheria and it was delicious. Go there if you have the time..

If you take the trouble to find this place you will be rewarded by authentic cuisine and souvenirs exactly like those on the boulevard for 1/4 to 1/3 the cost.

Great food. Fun atmosphere. Authentic. I like to check out local markets to see the authentic version of area foods. This place did not disappoint. Lot's oa small restaurants selling similar foods which were as authentic as authentic can be.

It was great to find a traditional market surviving and apparently thriving in San Jose. It's about a 10 minute walk west from the main drag (Blvd. Mijares) along Coronado St. The walk's a trip in itself; look for the sidewalk cobbler's shed on the...More

If your not local or have been here before, it is worth the time to search it out. You can get knick knacks and souvenirs for way cheaper than any pace along hotel row or centro. Also the shopping for produce, meats and seafood is...More
