Wow! If you can imagine it, you will find it here. Clothes, shoes, food, spices, chilies, gifts and more. Make sure to plan for several hours if you are a real shopping hound.

Anything and everything you could want you could find there. From a cows heart to a trinket for a child. I loved getting to try all the different flavors of chapulines.

There is so much to see in this market, so many flavors, colors, items...and the good thing is that as a foreigner they let you just stroll around without getting hassled in any way. Thanks folks!

While very large and somewhat overwhelming, perhaps somewhat inauthentic for some items, nevertheless, a must. Although the signs say it opens at 8 AM, things don't really get underway til about 10.

Great place to buy some mezcal, local hot sauces and spices. They even have a good court area where u can buy snacks.

Ok so the offer is fairly repetitive after a while but it's good fun and safe. What's not to like. More fun shopping than Zocalo any day of the week :)

Stall after stall after stall. So much variety! A must visit when in Oaxaca. The merchants are very willing to bargain.....you can get good prices. The property is very well maintained.

You can find anything here to buy or eat. Don't be afraid to splurge on the food! Grasshoppers to goat- it's all good. There is everything Oaxaca here and since Oaxaca is the belly of Mexico- go ahead and try it all. Pick out some...More

Hi Jonathan, I'm not sure why it's showing that way, the market is very close to the Zocalo in the center of town. Have fun!

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