El Mercado Viejo Craft Market

Our daughter making friends on the streets of Nicaragua.
We were in the Masaya market in Nicaragua and these sweet local girls took our daughter under their wing and they played for hours. We took the time to relax, have some lunch, and enjoy the fact that our daughters future would be forever enriched with culture as we continue to travel the world with her.

Authentic Arts Street Market
This market is a must walk through if you are visiting Masaya or nearby. After seeing the volcano, we stopped by the market where there are hundreds of local artisans selling art, jewelry, clothing, goods and fresh fruit. The scene is an incredibly colorful display in an old market building, where the sellers' tables overflow beyond into the streets nearby. We visited a few other local markets in nearby villages and I thought this one in Masaya was the best. If you are looking for fresh fruit, authentic art, handmade silver or traditional wood crafts this market gives the most options.
