Explore Santiago's fresh seafood, fruit and vegetable markets with a local!
Chile is famous for its delicious and varied seafood as well as its fresh fruits and vegetables. As a regular visitor and a foodie, I would love to show you my favorite corners of Santiago's markets and their colorful displays of seasonal produce.
I believe that you can truly get to know a city, only after spending some time at its markets.
Join me on this fun walking tour, and learn about the regional cuisine while mingling with the locals! Feel the bustling atmosphere, get to know friendly vendors, take a look at some exotic fruits and vegetables from all around Latin America and find out about the immigrant influence on modern-day Santiago!
There will be chance to try some fresh produce and traditional snacks on the go.
If your group is bigger please contact me and I will customize the tour for you.
To reach the downtown area from your hotel we will use public transportation or a cab.
We will start at Plaza de Armas (main square) and take a short walk to reach the market area. Once we arrive we will visit:
- La Vega (fruit & vegetable market)
- La Pergola (flower market)
- Mercado Central (fish market)
We will finalize the tour near Mercado Central (fish market), so if you would like to stay in the area a little longer we can say goodbye here, or I could accompany you back to your hotel.

Laurisa is a true gem. She came to our hotel and we went off on an adventure that included subways, markets and walking. She loves her adopted city and was very helpful.
