The Iron Market (French: Marché en Fer) is an iconic architectural, historical landmark in Haiti, located in down town Port-au-Prince. The Iron Market is a trading place where you can find literally everything. Products availability starts from vegetables to Vodou priests providing their spiritual services. It is truly the most popular public market in all Haiti, and one of the most recognizable landmark of the country. The Iron Market was built in Paris in the 1890's, it was originally intended for a train station in Cairo, but then Haitian President, Florvil Hyppolite bought it when the Egyptian deal fell through. It took, 5 years for the complete transportation and installation.
The Iron Market was not exempt from the devastating 2010 earthquake that destroyed much of the Capital's structures and left hundreds of thousands dead. It was severely damaged to near complete destruction. But within a year, Digicel, the country's largest telecom company, decided to rebuild the Iconic structure; its rebuilding costed a whopping $15 millions, it was the very first public structures repaired after the 2010 Earthquake.
