Where Should I Buy Spices in La Romana Port?

The best place to buy spices in La Romana is at the Municipal Market on Dr. Teofilo Ferry Street (between Gregorio Luperon and Fray Juan de Utera streets). The easiest way to head there is to take a cab and tell the driver to head to the Mercado Municipal (Municipal Market) near Parque Central (Central Park). The drive should take about 15 minutes or less. When buying spices, don't hesitate to bargain, and never accept an initial price. Part of the fun of buying in the market is to bargain. It is a good idea to shop with a local so he or she can advise you about what vendors to avoid and how to determine whether a spice is no longer fresh. For more info, see La Romana Port Guide
