There are hundreds of stalls inside the Market, and alspomst as many lining the street outside. Clothies, food, liquor, candy, toys, books, shoes - you name it. Packed with locals and visitors.

If you want to buy grazy, tasty, beautiful, interessting, ...stuff on a typical mexican market, you have to visit this one. Endless corridors full of charming and colorfull things you want to buy in the moment you see them. Speaking spanish is a benefit.

Sights. Smells. Sounds. Taste. Feel. Authentic is a meager word. Activities associated with what you purchase are also often staged here. What is there not to like?
