Join us and discover the markets in Chile and make the most of life and all the delicacies the capital of Chile has hidden away.
Book our Chile Market Free Walking Tour and discover how despite the many modern shopping centres that have sprouted around the city, the noise, colour and friendliness of the traditional markets cannot be replaced.
Explore in the company of our English speaking guide, the Central Market, a temple of seafood. No other place in the world has such a wide range of shellfish, caught along the 7000 km of the Chilean coast. Its size and flavor are unique due to the cold Humboldt current- this is the 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, which is open 365 days a year, navigate through its perfectly organized chaos as you enjoy its smell of tomato and basil.
Spot the young lover searching for the perfect bouquet in the “Pergola de las Flores” (Flower Market) and then carry onto finding your ideal hat in the oldest hat shop in Santiago. Enjoy a delicious sandwich made with “marraqueta” and understand just why Chile is the world´s second country when it comes to bread. The tour ends at La Piojera, one of the city´s most vibrant historic bars as you take a sip of the popular “Terremoto” (earthquake) made with white wine, ask for it with a shot of fernet or granadina, topped off with pineapple ice cream. Just as tasty as it is unique!
On our Chile Market Free Walking Tour you will go on a journey into the essence of Chilean popular culture and understand that even though cities like Santiago change, traditions remain the same. Delve deep into a city of colours, smells, delicacies, laughter, accents and shouting that combined together make up the vibrant reality of what Chilean society is like.
