“okay market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

nothing outstanding. Produce and meats downstairs, and trinkets upstairs, but nothing of great quality. Reasonably clean.

“Market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Fruit, vegetables, chicken, meat, etc. downstairs. Cheapo souvenirs upstairs. Don't expect to see anything unique or handmade.

“Every City in Mexico Has a Mercaddo Like This”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

It is smaller than most, but all the standard butchers, green-grocers, and street vendors are represented here. The torta carnitas are the best reason to visit!

“Great market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

A little bit of everything here. Gracious venders, no hassles. Had fun buying fruit for the house and fixings for guacamole, all with lots of smiles. There are great places for my favorite shrimp cocktail and upstairs there's a vendor in the corner who sells great pottery at reasonable prices.
