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

The market is huge and divided into various sections, food and handicraft. Handicraft section is exceptionally well stocked and really cheap my comparison to other shops. What shocks is the level of abject poverty that I have not seen in any other Mexican city. An...More

This is unknown to most visitors in Oaxaca, but I tell you that this is the original market, the place where grandmas and local chefs go to get their food supplies. Where local customs can be found for any quinceanera celebration. Where you can taste...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

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A typical market with breads, fruits, meats, tortillas, plastic wear, clothes, Mezcal, purses, Mexican wear, and all things in between. The largest market in Oaxaca by far! Always a colorful experience that lets you use your five senses.

Busling, busy and incredibly interesting. I'm so glad we managed to snake our way through the market. We had seen it on one of Anthony Bourdains shows and decided to stop in while we were in Oaxaca. It's a maze. You'll definitely get turned around...More

It’s funny how excited I was to see this market. We grid walked it just to make sure we saw everything. It’s on the overwhelming side and we made a rookie move by getting hungry and eating at a random stall in the middle before...More

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