These kinds of markets are worth checking out in any city! While walking through the aisles stuffed high with product, it started raining pretty hard so we stayed even longer than we intended. There's definitely enough to keep you occupied though: food stands, ice cream/popsicles, souvenirs (a bit cheaper than outside), pets, flowers, produce, meat, bread, etc.

Remember all those colorful pictures of the Mexico ad campaigns? Well, visit this mercado and see it for real. From fruits, to ants and other edible insects, to colorful bags, beans and grains...this is Oaxaca live. Try fresh juices or any other of the street food offered there.

Cascades of food stalls, piles of chiles, toys, flowers, and Artesanias make this a fun place to explore.

So many different things to see and do at these markets. Every step you take there is something new - clothes, food, animals, produce, juice. A must see!

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.
