Atenas Central Market

Just one block west of the park, the town market is a hub of activity. Local buses depart from here for smaller towns and several sodas (small restaurants serving local food) sell delicious lunches for around $2. Cheese, fresh meats, fruits and vegetables are sold by local vendors. There is also a health food shop, a shoe store and a jewelry vendor. A statue of Saint Rafael, the Patron Saint of Atenas, stands in the courtyard of the market.
