Dac Market is where many people go to get fresh produce, imported items that they cannot find in large grocery stores or they come just for the feel of the market. There is a small café at the front of the store that is also an allure.
Where is Dac Market
Dac Market is conveniently located on 30th Avenue just north of Constituyentes Avenue, parking is available in front but limited. There is a small parking lot on 20th Street on the opposite side of the market.
Dac Market is good to find some Asian food stuffs that you cannot find in the larger grocery stores, a small selection fresh baked goods, greens and herbs, and bulk spices and dried fruit. It is fun to go shopping there and then come up with new menu items for your diet. The other day I was there and bought cous cous, then found yellow curry and added raisins to my order and put it together for an Indian style curry dish. Even though there is a variety of restaurants and so much great Mexican food in Playa, it is still nice to be able to explore further into the food world at Dac Market and other small local weekly markets.
When at Dac Market if you feel hungry or want a good juice of coffee, check out La Ceiba Restaurant in the front. It has a nice atmosphere and good menu.
