Both the market and streets leading to it tram with fairly priced vendors. Whether you want shoes, belts, mole, flowers, chapuline, clothing or trinkets, it's great. I always visit

Walked from my hotel in Centro. Busy place, friendly vendors and market goers. Bought strings of various coloured seed beads, a 5’ hand-woven, cream coloured table runner intricately woven in cotton and a woven back pack to carry it all home in.

Everything you could want (and things you might not have known you want!) are here at the market from bakeries, to meats, to souvenirs and gorgeous clothing. A fun taste of the city and Oaxaca culture.

Overwhelming but just do it! So many things to look at and so many people!! Go up and down every row, worth it to see all the different items! People are fine with tourists, but be prepared for the hustle and bustle

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