URBAN MARKET (Mercado Urbano)

On the first Sunday of every month (next one is on December 2), a lively market is held in Condado's Ventana al Mar which is the large plaza on Avenida Ashford right in front of the sea.  Housed in a large tent, there are numerous stalls selling everything from plants (orchid, lavender and fresh herbs) to artisan bread from artepan, from farm fresh fruits and vegetables to straw hats perfect for the blinding Caribbean sun.  There are also several food stalls with lechon asado (roast pig), bacalaitos (fried cod fritters) and even tropical flavored ice cream.  It's a fun day out and a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon wandering through the stalls and stopping by for a snack or a bit of shopping.

First Sunday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
