Always check out the markets to see local life and offerings. Had breakfast there of traditional Mole Negro Tamal, a must to try and it was perfect.

This marketplace reminded me a bit of an Indian Jones movie where the character goes to Cairo through the markets there.

I love the crazy collections of food, authentic materials made in Oaxaca, and the oddball things they have. It's very crowded and smelly by the fish and raw meat, but the leather pieces, woven goods and creative items are worth exploring!

He visitado muchos mercados a través del mundo latino y este es mi favorita. El queso y las nieves son están riquísimas! I have visited many markets throughout the Latin world and this is one of the best you can get fresh cheese and the local niece similar to ice cream is awesome!

A market is a market but this one was so colourful and had everything from booze to chickens! Don't miss it even if you're not in mood for shopping you will enjoy the spectacle.
