Nothing special about the market, there are much better ones in every bigger town on Yucatan. But, the place to go if you need some fruit, cheap meal or even a souvenir. It is just a few steps from the convent and bus station

We often shop at this colorful mercado, especially for local exotic fruits, and have become friends with several of the local, friendly vendors who always greet us by name and usually a hug. It's a happy place to shop!

If you want to get a feel for daily life in Mexico, don't miss the Big Mercado in Itzamal. In the heart of the city across from the Santuario de la Virgen de Izamal church. The Market opens in the morning and closes in the...More
