It was the first place my friends and I went to on our 5-day stay. The market was huge, you could easily find anything there. In the middle were all the small little restaurants. Where you can eat a great meal for 50 pesos. This is where I tried the Tlayuda for the frist time, it´s delicious!

The markets are the best place to enjoy the flavors of Oaxaca. They're filled with colors, smells, tastes, languages foreign to many of us and it can be wonderfully overwhelming. There are three markets that I recommend: Benito Juarez, 20 de Noviembre, and La Merced. The first two are located a few blocks south of the central plaza, and the... More

If you want to truly experience Oaxaca try out the market and don't be afraid to haggle. We bought some great bags, chocolate candies and cheap soccer jerseys.

I strode through this market, looking foolish with my GoPro on my head. Happy to suffer embarrassment for the resulting video. A magical spot, it teems with life, color, sound, smell---all of the delights of Oaxaca in this bazaar-like setting in which you experience all of Oaxaca in an intense way.

Busy market with fruits, vegetables, meats, clothing and flowers. Crowded and area around very busy with auto and pedestrian traffic. Had better experience and spent lots more money at Mercado de Artesanias.

The market is diverse. Some of the goods are beautiful and seem to inexpensive and some of the stuff is just junk. But worth the trip. Try the food at the many vendors. Chorizo tacos are great.

Just remember to haggle! But also remember that the people you are haggling with are probably not as well off as you and you should try to give them something close to what they want because they probably really do need the money. I never mind paying full price for things if I think the person is a good person... More
