Mercado Nuevo is a market located in one of the poorer barrios of Santo Domingo, Villas Agricolas. All types of fruits and vegetables are available for rock-bottom prices. But, this place ain't for the faint of heart. Purchased for less than RD$500 pesos ($14) was limes, celery, tomatoes, spices, fresh corn, and many, many plantains. Many neighborhoods have these local markets, but I have not seen one as big as this.
