To get a true insight into the food and lifestyle in Mazatlan, then you should see the mercado. There is so much to buy. But my most favorite is the juice bar that is on along the outside of the market, facing the street. There you can get any kind of juice freshly squeezed right in front of you. Probably... More

This is the main local market for produce and meats and the best and cheapest place for them in Mazatlan. There is also a side of this market for souvenirs and tourist things and don't miss out on eating some cheap but good meals on the 2nd floor.

Great place to shop for bargains, and don't miss the restaurants on the second floor at the west end, where you can get a delicious lunch for 50 pesos (less than $3 US).

We wanted to go to the organic farmers market that is only there on Saturday but not having been there before, we realized after that we were at the wrong place. Fruits and vegetables were cheap. Watch out for rats. Some of the vendors are very pushy. But it definitely was an experience to see where the locals shop.

I've been to so many markets that I admit I'm getting picky. If you're a gringo as we are, then don't come here with your heart set on finding designer clothes or unique art. The magic in this place is that it gives you a glimpse of everyday shopping for Mexican Mazatlaners, from leather belts to pigs' heads. There's an... More

We wanted to experience Mazatlan the way the locals do so we headed for the Mercado. It was vibrant and bustling. You can find absolutely everything here. We enjoyed the varied shopping experience and left with our arms full of packages. Most of the vendors were very polite and eager to have you check out their wares. One thing that... More

The Mercado Pino Suarez has been the main public market in Mazatlan for over 100 years. There is an abundance of gifts, meats, fish, produce and plenty of fresh food. A true local experience.

This Mercado is a must see when you are in Mazatlan. It is easy to get there, most buses pass it on one side or the other. It is a mishmash of stalls, from fresh meat and chicken, fish, dairy, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. There is a herb section, nuts, spices etc.etc., and of course souvenirs, Jewelry and...
