As far as markets go, very interesting foods and things for purchase. For me it was very crowded and too many people. That is how markets are though so my number of stars might not be fair.....

Crowded, smelly but adorable place to see and feel like local. Tremendous choice of textiles, food, veggies and anything else you would want to buy. Go in and get lost in a maze of shops, stands etc.

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!
