On the same site since colonial times, the Lagunilla is one of the biggest covered markets in the city, selling food, furniture, and cheap clothing. On Sundays, though, things get a little more interesting when antique dealers and casual vendors set up on the streets surrounding the market. Though there’s a lot of junk to sift through, and a good number of stalls selling pirated goods, there are some treasures to be found—costume jewelry, retro sunglasses, old-school 50’s kitchen goods, and more. Plus, the torta and cold-pressed juice stand right inside one of the main entrances into the antiques area is awesome. You’ll want to have your wits about you, though, as the market and its surrounds do harbour the occasional pick-pocket.
