Shopping

Every city in Nicaragua has a central market. Fruits, vegetables and meats can normally be found inside the market building with any non-perishable items being sold around the market structure. Some markets have hand made crafts or products of local workmanship, though at times these are not easily located. To shop for Nicaragua made goods, the artisan’s market in Masaya and Managua’s central market, Roberto Huembes are two very good options. The Masaya artisan’s market is dedicated solely to the talents of the local and national craftsmen. The central market in Managua has a big section dedicated to crafts from all over the country. Nicaraguan crafts and market goods are not marked up in anticipation of negotiation. The prices quoted are what the merchant expects to get; though a small discount can be obtained if persistent.
