Farmers Market
“Plaza del Mercado, or La Placita as it’s more commonly known, is a traditional market during the day. It truly comes to life in the evening though, as the streets fill with people enjoying the many bars and restaurants that surround it. Visit La Placita in the evening (Thursday through Saturday are the busiest nights), and you’ll be treated to live music and dancing in the streets. Grab a bite to eat or a drink, then join in the fun … the festive atmosphere is contageous!”

Cafe
“One of the best cafés to open in San Juan in recent years, Caficultura prides itself both on its full coffee-bar menu and its delicious cocina de mercado. Many ingredients are sourced locally, and the menu changes by the season. For breakfast, which is served all day, try coconut-milk French toast with pineapple jam and coconut shavings. Numerous vegetarian options are available, especially at lunch, when you'll also find many delicious gourmet sandwiches and heartier dishes on offer. The building is beautifully restored: distressed concrete walls meet an old, Spanish-style wood-beamed ceiling—hanging from it is a magnificent antique chandelier.”
