This market is huge and they sell every type of fruit and vegetable. It's very crowded and most of the vendors sell the same items as the others. Very competitive! There is also a huge meat market and more shoes than I've ever seen!

Make sure you map this place because we found no signage and no one around seemed to know it by name. But when you find it you are in (if you enjoy raucous markets) for a treat. All your senses will be in alert. The...More

Color, crowds, chaos. This is a real Mexican market. It goes for blocks in several directions. You can find anything you need here at a reasonable price. It will take patience and a tolerance for narrow aisles. This is well worth checking out even if...More

This is one of the most popular markets in Merida - for both the locals as well as tourists alike. It is a short walk from the central main plaza (Plaza Grande). You can find so many things you want/need - food, clothing, household items,...More
