Sutiava Market (El Mercadito), León, Nicaragua

Vegetable stand at the Sutiava market
A short distance away from the city centre - on the west side of León  - you will find an indigenous neighbourhood called Sutiava. It is here that you will find a small market - the smallest of the four in León - nicknamed El Mercadito. If you like fresh seafood then this is the market you want to visit - early in the morning is best time to get the freshest fish, shrimp, crab and other goodies from the sea.

From the south side of the Central Market you can find either a bus or camionetta that will take you to Sutiava. Heading to the beach? It is from El Mercadito that you will find the bus that will take you to the beaches of Poneloya and Las Peñitas.
