Havana markets

Just ask a Cuban to show you where Havana markets are located. Many are hidden away, like Animas, down a side street.

The prices listed at these outdoor markets are in pesos 

At these small farmers’ markets you can buy aromatic vegetables and tropical fruits like mangoes, papaya and the exotic mamey; also black beans, garlic and avocados. Many of the market sellers offer a piece of their fruits for you to sample.

The Cuatro Caminos Farmers Market is now gone; in its place is a modern shopping mall. It has two floors with groceries, hardware, furniture, liquor and a meat market. Expect long line-ups at every shop.
