Are you looking for a fun shopping experience in San Juan? On the first Sunday of every month, the Urban Market (Mercado Urbano, in Spanish) is set up at La Ventana al Mar in Condado. Under big tents, this market holds about 40 or 50 vendors of local, Puerto Rican made products. Most of the vendors offer samples, so you can try before you buy. Everything is home grown or home made on the island. You’ll be able to find plants, flowers, soaps, breads, sangria, coffee, cheese, vinegars, ice cream … all sorts of things. It is a great stop.
The Mercado Urbano is open from 9am to 5pm on the first Sunday of the month. Due to popular demand, the Mercado Urbano is also held at different places around the island on other days of the month. Keep an eye out for their signs, or follow their facebook for up to the minute information on locations.
