Go to Oaxaca without eating at the mercado then you have not visited Oaxaca. Not a fancy place but for sure a place full of culture an Mexican taste from all the points of view. Great traditional food the whole day.

And eat lunch here everyday! The smoky hall is amazing. Grab some carne asada and chorizo and then eat, eat, eat. We tried the food for 3 different stalls for 2 lunches and all were AMAZING.

Great place to try a variety of Oaxacan food. I wasn't super impressed with some of the Mole I tried. I do however agree with other travelers that the grilled meat area was the most fun and delicious.

There are lots of places to eat in this Mercado, as you will easily see when you walk in. Let me put in my vote for the grilled food available on the far (north?) side of the place. You'll see stacks of raw meet, hot...More

There are a large number of small restaurants preparing typical food, such as tlayudas, moles and tamales. We chose one that we liked how the dishes looked. The food was just delicious. The talyuda here was open and it was much larger than the plate....More

This is a place mostly for locals, although a lot of stalls clearly cater to tourists. Several stalls offer traditional food and drink from Oaxaca, and the prices, especially for things like local chilies and chocolates, can't be beat.
