Farmers’ Markets: A Growing Trend

Due to COVID-19, many of the markets are not yet happening. Hopefully they will resume soon.

Back in the day, each town in Puerto Rico had a Plaza del Mercado (market), which was a building near the center of town local residents could buy fresh produce from a bunch of different sellers. But, today, with fully-stocked supermarkets all over the island, these local markets are becoming a thing of the past.

But recently — with renewed interest in buying fresh, local, and (when available) organic food — local farmers markets are starting up all around Puerto Rico. You may still find that some of the towns have a mercado near the plaza with produce available every day, the current trend is an open-air market, usually just once a week or twice a month, where local farmers, other small growers, and artisans come together to sell their goods.

Farmers Market

If you are looking to buy fresh, locally grown or made items, then a Farmers’ Market is for you. These markets are where you will find some really unusual and wonderful stuff. And it is not just for health nuts. Buying fresh and local is a win-win for everyone — you get fresh food or some local products and handicrafts, and you help support the local economy. The money you spend stays here, helping the locals.

Buying at the larger local mercado buildings in town (like Río Piedras, Placita in Santurce or the Caguas mercado) helps the local economy, as they are locally owned and operated. But the inventory is not always from local farms, as they may have to go an importer to have enough goods on any given day.

So trying these smaller, pop-up farmers’ markets really increases your odds of meeting the grower, and getting fresh locally grown (or made) stuff. Either way, make sure to get there early as the supply is limited.

Thanks- I will take that one off. Post Maria, things really changed (plants/trees destroyed, local fruit/veggies were scarce) and now just recently, these markets are returning with produce.

I appreciate your effort to compile this so I thought I would update you. Yesterday (Friday) I went in search of the Carolina farmer's market. Nothing. There is a plaza near the coordinates given where It might be but it wasn't there. Im going to check out the Luquillo market today. Will keep you informed.

Comment by Kaiulani Schuler on 12 Jan 2019

I am pretty sure there is a farmer's market possibly every Fri and Sat mornings (I think the 2nd and 4th) from 9am-1pm on the Paseo del Litoral (on rt 102).
