Often referred as "La Placita", it's the area surrounding the Plaza de Mercado in Santurce and the heart & soul among locals. Come during the daytime and enjoy some papaya fruit shakes inside the Mercado building while shopping for produce. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights people flock to la Placita for drinks and some occasional live music.

La Plaza del Mercado in Santurce is a typical Puerto Rican farmer's market. It is a marketplace that has a very colorful central building from the beginning of the 20th century. In front of the structure there are great large avocado sculptures. During the day, it is a traditional market where they sell fruits, vegetables, herbs, and other local products such as cheese, coconut water, and cigars. There are some excellent places inside the market where you may find excellent fruit shakes made right in front of you. I recommend the batido de frutas using coconut water as a base. Around the market, different bars and restaurants serve traditional Puerto Rican dishes. In the evenings, the placita turns into a street party with many musical events, dances, happy hours, and social meeting place for locals. One of the best things is that it is not so touristic and allows you experience the real Puerto Rican fiesta.

This is the place to be on Friday Night. It get crazy busy at night.
Locals come here every Friday night at around 8PM to have a drink and get together with friends. There is life music and lots of beautiful people.
There are a few great restaurants near La Placita.
