This is the best place in the world to go for leather belts. Went there 10 years ago and purchased belts. They were the best I have ever had. Went back this year and the two vendors who sell them were still there with the same quality products at rock bottom prices. Stocked up for the next ten years! Lot's of other vendors for those in search of other values but many of them food related.

The Mercado Pino Suarez is the main open-air market in old town Mazatlan. Easy to get there as many bus lines pass by the front or back of the market. One of the market has a number of meat vendors who have everything you might want (and probably a few things you don't, like whole pig's heads). It helps if you know how to ask for what you want at the meat market in Spanish, but many of the vendors speak some English. On the other side of the market are the fruit and vegetable sellers. I've become friends with one, and she helps me select the best produce I've ever had. I ask her for a sweet melon and she picks one which is invariably wonderful. The celery from the market is amazing--fresh and crisp! Some of the things are things I've never eaten before, but still great. There is an area of spice sellers where you can get any type of pepper from mild pasilla peppers to really spicy pequin peppers and everything in between. Fun place to shop!

Best prices for souvenirs compared to any port in Mexico. You must barter do not accept the first offer. Take 70 percent off from the first offer and start from there. Once the offer is at 50 percent walk away and go browse other stores. They will drop the price. Dont be afraid to leave and come back later

First to be said is this market has upgraded so much in the last 10 years . Meats are quality,fresh, and safe for consumption. There is everything a tourist may want to buy and at much better price than the Tourist Traps.

This Market is a square city block. There are rows and rows of venders with narrow aisles. They have everything from food to clothing, all kinds of crafts with some unique stuff as well as the usual stuff. It is an experience that we like to have once on our holiday. There is nothing we really needed since were were staying at an all inclusive resort. We spent about 45 minutes looking around and then went on to other things. It is right downtown in the historic center.

In the "Centro" part of the old downtown, you can find a huge marketplace with almost anything you are looking for. Although covered, the marketplace is open rather than in a closed building. We entered in the area of the fish and seafood, and a few of our friends could not stay in that area for more than a minute. It was aromatic to say the least. But, what an assortment of raw fish, shrimp, etc. You can also find fresh meat, vegetables, and fruit. In fact there is a huge assortment of fresh fruit. We also came across a booth with a big assortment of spices. It doesn't appear to be regulated, so you take your chances on some of that stuff if you don't know what you are looking for. There are also many stands with souvenir type stuff, and if you get far enough away from the seafood area, there are a couple of booths where you can get some authentic Mexican food. So many booths crammed in this building, could take you an hour or more to walk around. It was about 1130 am and we found the market to be quite busy with both locals and tourists shopping.

It's fun to go and see the market but the am is really the best time. The last time we went we walked in where several girls were trying to sell things and got very loud and annoying. They were really over the top but otherwise it's always interesting to see. Always a little cautious as years ago my grandmother had her purse cut from the bottom while at the market so that's always in the back of my mind. We always take the bus and really enjoy it.

Have been there many times but the first time we went there on a Sunday we were surprised to see mass service in the middle of the aisles, stopping all shoppers who had to walk all the way around to get to the other side of the market. Very fresh spices, meats, cheeses, membrillo, fruits, vegetables.
On the other side are the ubiquitous hats, clothes, leather goods, touristic junkets, etc.
The meat section is not for the faint of heart. If you don't mind seeing full pig heads looking at you and smelling the not so cold meats and fish this place can be for you.
Restaurants upstairs where you can taste the local food. We usually eat where we see the shop owners eat (you recognize them with their stained aprons, etc.)
We keep coming for the food and restaurants but not for the clothes and such...

It's your average mercado, a must if you get bored of being in the hotel zone (golden zone). It's a nice way to buy like locals.
Be ready to haggle w/ the vendors.
We took a pulmonia (golf cart) from golden zone and payed $120 pesos and araña (covered pickup) fir the way back for $100 pesos. Anyways we could've taken the bus for $10 pesos. Either way, it was good to experience.
