Discover Santiago’s markets, a place where people gather to find the best ingredients and social activity. On our Free Tour of Santiago’s Markets you will see how, despite that many modern shopping centers have sprouted around the city, the colourful atmosphere of traditional markets is never replaced.

Explore the Central Market, a temple of seafood. Its size and flavor are unique due to the cold Humboldt current – a seafood lover’s paradise! And everything is caught daily – it doesn’t get fresher than that! Get lost in La Vega market, one of the biggest fruit and vegetable markets on the continent, and navigate through its perfectly organized chaos as you enjoy the smell of tomato and basil.

Enjoy a sandwich made with Chile’s favorite bread, marraqueta and finish the tour in La Piojera, one of the bars with the most history and character in the city. On our Tour of Santiago’s Markets you will understand that even though cities like Santiago change, traditions remain. Dive with us into a world of colors, smells, delicious food, laughter, different accents, and loud voices that together form the kaleidoscopic Chilean social reality.

Great way to see the markets

5/5 stars

We did the market tour with Mauricio this morning. He was very friendly and gave us good local knowledge. It was a great way to see the markets as we had no idea how large they were.

Engaging and informative tour

5/5 stars

Being the only two English speakers on the day, we had a personal tour from Mauricio around the markets in Santiago. We tried the Sopaipillas (of which we are now a firm fan) and learnt about the history of the markets and of the city as a whole. Mauricio was very friendly and informative and we had a very enjoyable morning, thanks!
