Fodor's Review

The official name is Mercado Municipal Gran Mariscal Ramón Castilla, but Limeños simply call this massive market the Mercado Central. Its hundreds of vendors display the ingredients of the city's varied cuisine, including hooks hung with slabs of meat and poultry and trays piled high with seafood. Wheels of cheese are stacked above tubs of olives, open sacks hold everything from dried potato chunks to ají peppers, and bundles of spices lie next to natural remedies.
