San Jose, Costa Rica's Mercado Central, or Central Market, is the largest marketplace in San Jose.

While some souvenirs and handicrafts can be found here, the downtown market is mainly stocked for San Jose locals, and thus is a great destination for sampling some authentic urban culture in Costa Rica. Shop for some sweets, enjoy an empanada, and buy a Costa Rica-themed beach towel for that trip to those famous Costa Rica beaches.
