The Garcia Rejon Market was once known as a place of sales, and as the square or plaza where all kinds of vegetables were sold. The two sides could find brokers and masonry stands where retailers were located in the center, and women selling vegetables just outside.
The square was surrounded by a partition, where the guests and passersby sat and visited, but this was taken down in 1862 and stores were built, their walls supported the roofs, placed in 1881. The main entrance to the market has been in use since 1862.
