Try the ceviche in the fish market, very fresh and piquant, similar to gazpacho. 60 pesos, plus 20 more pesos for a cold beer to wash it down. Whilst visiting the market we also picked up some smoky chipotle chillis and mole powder, we could...More

Great market for leather, flowers, meat, local style clothing, vegetables, chocolate, cheese, spices, mezcal, mole, ice cream, crickets (!) and more. You may want to avoid the meat and fish vendor section if you have a sensitive nose.

This is the largest public market in the city of Oaxaca and has everything from traditional Oaxaca ingredients for cooking, flowers, traditional clothing and souvenirs. You get a real feel for the culture, and most of the people inside are not tourists. It's where the...More

Sections for leather goods, clothing,shoes fruit, vegetables, meats and even jewelry. It is easy to get lost in the maze, just enjoy and stop and look. We always buy fruit to take back to our hotel.

I've been in markets throughout the Americas and I must say this one is a notch better than most. Set in a historic building from the 1890's it features all the expected produce/meats/household goods/handicrafts but also has some semi-upscale coffee/mole/chocolate and mezcal specialty shops. Clean...More

Mercado Benito Juárez is a market that mainly cater to the locals shopping for everyday goods. It’s worth a wonder but there wasn’t much for the tourist inside. There were some good liquid stands where we got to try some horchata tuna and tejate.

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.
