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

Lots of colorful and flavorful foods. I love Oaxaca and all of the Markets there. Spent my day dining on Chili Colorado, buying alibrijes and Frida merchandise and finishing off with Mezal flavored ice cream. Such a wonderful experience.

You can find many shops here, and need a map to get out....You get a little disoriented while you are walking around.

This market is about the smells, sounds and views of great food and some more exotic things. Come open to the experience, ask around (if you speak spanish as most people don't speak english), and try things. You won't regret it. One of the most memorable places in our visit to Oaxaca.

There are so many little warrens and dens to explore the great artisan products and unusual foods of the region. You'll have to go back 3-4 times because there is so much to see.
