Old San Juan Farmers Market

The Farmer's Market in Old San Juan is the best place to find friendly people and fresh food. It began in 2010, thanks to a group of proactive locals, immediately becoming a success. Stop by to enjoy locally grown fruit and vegetables or purchase a product created by a local artisan.

Each Saturday, locals set up their wares among the arches of the San Juan Museum, offering a collective of locally grown and made products. Their focus is sustainable Agriculture, so, along with seasonal organic vegetables and fruit, some of the market's offerings include artisanal cheeses and breads, a wide variety of delicious prepared foods from several chefs, exotic flowers, fresh tropical juices, amazing desserts including vegan and gluten free, and soaps harvested from local ingredients.

Popular items among tourists seem to include organic coffees and teas, nutrition bars, pesto, essential body oils, market bags and aprons bearing the market logo designed by well-known local artist Nick Quijano.
