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.

Where you'll be

Each market in Santiago holds a special charm, and is of unique importance to its patrons. La Vega is my favorite, and is my local grocery store that I frequent once or twice a week. It's a crazy maze of activity, and you can feel the hurried pace of the vendors as they rush past you to sell their goods. You'll find exotic fruits, fresh juices and food from all parts of Latin America.
