The 20 the Noviembre is the farmers market, not to be confused with Benito Juarez which is the Arts and Crafts Market. Though they are together are completely different. Here you can find all sorts of regional food and ingredients, same as stands to eat in. Do not miss the Meats aisle where you can choose your meat, they will... More

there are different sections to this market. There is a food section, and produce section, etc. We targeted the food part for breakfast. It is extensive, with multiple stalls serving really interesting local food. Wonderful authentic experience.

If you travel to Oaxaca and miss this place, you defenitely have missed a lot. Specifically, I loved the Carnas Asadas, which basically was the meat grilling place. It was at first very overwhelming since everyone was trying to get your business. Then you had to go to any of the meat stalls to order your meat. we got half... More

We love markets and this is not to be missed! Don't have breakfast in your hotel. Go to the mercado and have hot chocolate with a sweet roll. You won't be sorry. Or, have lunch and some delicious soup or some skirt steak grilled over an open fire with some homemade guacamole. Get the picture? It's phenomenal!! For more go... More

The Mercado 20 de Noviembre houses a collection of fondas - small restaurants and food stalls - and they each deserve separate reviews. A steady stream of local visitors and Mexican tourists helps to keep quality high and there is a variety of Oaxacan specialties on offer. For many, the most memorable part of the 20 de Noviembre is the... More

If there is one thing I would recommend to do in Oaxaca, even with all the other amazing things, it would be to go and eat in the market 20 de noviembre. I ate here twice in three days and only regretted it hadn't been more! Entering from the East, you will pass through many barbecue places. On a Sunday... More

The food is excellent in virtually every stall, the chocolate de agua unforgettable, the surroundings a real cultural celebration, the people treasurable. Everyone is here to have a great experience. Visitors, vendors, cooks. Have fun, joke with the... More

We went to Oaxaca to eat, and we could have eaten here every day. We had read that the 20 de Noviembre market was not to be missed, but we spent the first few days thinking the one on the next block was it - but that one sells mostly goods, with just some food stalls (we ate well there,... More

While looking for arts n crafts in the not that cheap market across the road, we stumbled into the food court here in 2th November market. The place we sat at (can't remember the name) was offering standard Oaxacan fare. We had mole Tlayuda amarillo (yellow mole tlayuda) and I had a red mole with chicken and rice. Both were... More

If you are a real traveler who enjoys to try traditonal food this is the best place to eat. Forget about the fancy places in the center. This market is one of the best I´ve seen in Mexico, and Oaxaca is probably one the richest gastronomic states all over the country. Here you can find the tlayudas, moles, chocolate, chorizo,... More
