This is absolutely a must see if you're in Central Oaxaca. Even if you aren't into shopping, surly you'd like to try a grasshopper or a taste of mezcal. The market offers a wide variety of Oaxacan products (trinkets, clothes, smoothies, alcohol, etc.). It's right...More

This market, as well as the 20 noviembre market right next to this market, are definitely worth visiting. The aisles tend to get crowded so ensure you have sufficient time. Clothing - both traditional and modern, fruits and vegetables, breads, meat, fish, chocolate and moles,...More

One of my favorite places to spend the day. Great food choices and a great spot for just watching people when having lunch. Most vendors are friendly and not "pushy or overbearing" as in some markets. If you want the best chocolate or mole this...More

It was interesting to walk through the market and see what is for sale, but in terms of buying stuff—I found it to be much more expensive that other areas in Oaxaca.

You can buy just about everything here! They have many "puestos" of different types of food, breads, cheese, and non-food items! I even met a famous actress from the 80's there!

This is a good example of a Mexican mercado, with all kinds of stalls selling crafts, produce, meats, coffee etc. There are 2 parts to it; closer to the Zocalo is the more craft oriented building with shoes, textiles etc, and the further building across...More
