We visited several times during our stay in Oaxaca. We ate in the market several times, and purchased homemade mole paste, which transported home very well. I wish we'd bought more, it was delicious!

This is the market to hit in central Oaxaca. Every kind of clothing, food, purse, tchotchkes you could want. Bargaining is fun, everyone is warm and friendly and eager to sell.

This market has everything: from local foods, incl. roasted grashoppers or ants, to herbs and spices, clothes and textiles and shoes and sandals. For the non-food items it may be a good idea to be hesitant about the price. It will go down immediately.

I preferred the weekday so that it wasn't soooo congested, but that's just a personal preference.
