After 3 weeks in Mexico. I was tired of the tacos and tortillas. The market has a section where you select the meat you want and they will grill it for you. From different vendors you can get fresh avocados salads, different salsas. It was...More

If you want to eat local oaxacan food made by real mexican people and for very few dollars, this is the place to go. Don't expect luxury , choose any of the stands and ask for chicken with mole (the chocolate spicy sauce) or mole...More

We visited the market a couple of times as it is always good to see where the locals shop and pick up any souvenirs at a reasonable price. The market is fairly big and sells pretty much anything you might want. Cookware, food, clothes, fiesta...More

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 went on both a Saturday and a weekday, and I thought that they were both busy. Keep an eye open for a lady with a small basket selling chapulines (small fried grasshoppers). She will have them in two versions: with chile or with garlic...More

Like most open markets, you can find most things here but I loved how intimate this one was. It's not small, but you can't get lost either, a real plus in my book. Highlights included: * Many chocolate sellers, all with strong opinions about their...More

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