About your host

Mixing my passion for food and photography, I'm excited to bring this walking tour of the markets of Santiago. I am a regular at La Vega market, and am familiar with many of the local vendors there. I know the ins and outs of each nook within the market, and can help make this experience a little less intimidating.
