Fun place to visit, but please if you take a persons picture or their products it is nice to give them a peso or two. Just spend some time anywhere here and enjoy.

Whatever it is that you want: chocolate, cheese, souvenirs, clothes and even crickets, you will most definitely find it at Mercado Benito Juarez. It's super close to Oaxaca's Zocalo and easy to find.

Certainly worth walking through parts of the market, to get a sense of what the locals eat and products they buy. Found a few food items to take home like fragrant Oaxacan vanilla extract and coffee. Had huge blocks of chocolate for sale.

Thus market has in its two parts about 1300 stalls catering for all types of food and drink as well as clothes, toys and household objects. Real fun to meander through the narrow passageways. Well worth a visit

While we have been to many larger and more interesting markets, this one is well worth a half hour of your time. It’s only a short block from the zocalo, and provides some interesting glimpses into local routines. It is a safe and friendly place...More

I hate shopping. I went early before crowds, fewer stalls open, but found all that I needed in a few stops. Reasonably priced tourist items with some cultural items mixed in. Happy with the experience. Went when there was a crowd but it was very...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!
