We had a great experience here, we are all morning walking nearby and found this little but well equipped market 2 blocks down La Vega Central. We were mesmerized by the smell of the food there. It's a mixed place between food, goods, veggies, groceries...More

Smaller market located near Vega market. We had a ton of fun checking it out. There are lots of produce stalls and other food stalls downstairs. Upstairs has a bunch of hole-in-the-wall restaurants. We ate at the Mexican place and it was delicious. Would definitely...More
