The historic Patronato Market is at the heart of a diverse and versatile community which finds its bearings back in 1890s, when Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian colonies were established. They also welcomed an influx of immigrants from Korea and China as a result the market seems very Asian in some aspects.
