Owner David Henessy's second Panama City restaurant (the first being La Posta), Market has made a place for itself as the place to dine in the city, filling up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner almost everyday. Essentially, Market is an up-market burger joint with an ingredients-based menu. Try the tasty porkchops, grown locally by Chiriqui highlands farmers or the popular "sliders," miniature, delicious hamburgers. But whatever you decide to dine on, you probably won't be disappointed. The restaurant has a surprisingly good selection of delicious salads, a rarity in Panamanian restaurants, and unlike most restaurants of its caliber, Market opens for breakfast Monday through Friday and brunch on Sunday. The restaurant is divided into two distinct areas: the main room is reminiscent of an upscale market deli (hence the name) boasting a sleek bar, contemporary decor, and a cool cement floor. The second floor, known as the Zebra Room, is airy and fresh, and perfect for those looking for a bit more privacy.
