We parked our car at the market as it has an easy access to city center and our hotel. We stopped at the mercado and it was cool to see the food stand. There is a nice place to eat for lunch.

This was our only day to visit and we found very little there. We saw a long row on empty stalls, a few vegetable stands, a couple of cheese vendors, and little else. We did buy some cheese which was tasty and reasonably priced.
