In pictures: a Chilean food market

The Monkey Factory

“Tres por luca, solo mil pesos!” the vendor yelled, beckoning us to her stall where we could purchase some tempting fresh fruit on a hot summer day.

Three views of La Vega, Santiago de Chile’s main food market. This place is usually packed during the day, with sellers loudly offering their produce and shoppers keenly haggling for bargains. The dry summer heat in Santiago is harshly unforgiving and I only managed to go towards the end of the day, when the temperature was bearable and sellers were busy packing up for the day.

It’s definitely worth another visit to the many cafes and restaurants that I didn’t have the chance to photograph on this occasion but for now you can enjoy three of my favourite stalls.
