This is where the locals go so you can get traditional Mexican food. It’s a little hard to find, there are a few souvenir stalls but not many, cheaper than market 28 and nice and friendly, no hassle off the vendors.

My family and I enjoyed this market. We went to Market 28 afterwards and we were disappointed with 28. At 28 they were pushy and didn’t want to take no for an answer. Market 23 was pleasant and none of the vendors made us feel...More
