There are hundreds of stalls divided into several sections, where you can shop for fresh vegetables, warm clothing, souvenirs, food, flowers and much more. San Pedro is packed with a bit of everything with good and affordable prices, as well as top quality products.
The San Pedro Market was inaugurated in 1925 though the construction wasn’t fully finished until 25 years later. Gustave Eiffel, the same architect that designed the famous Eiffel tower, was the one in charge of the oldest structure within the local market.
