Lots of Mexican/Oaxaca’s things to see. There are lots of little shops selling traditional clothes and crafts. Also, try some chapulines (grasshoppers)! If you buy something, try to have them make a lower offer. An experience to have!

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.

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