Mercado Central

Market in Potosí

Stalls in the comedor (dining hall) serve inexpensive breakfasts of bread, pastries and coffee. Downstairs there are some excellent juice stands. Cheese or meat empanadas are sold around the market until early afternoon, and in the evening, street vendors sell humitas (cornmeal filled with cheese, onion, egg and spices, baked in the oven or boiled).
