San Juan Market is a fantastic place with a large variety of food, fruits, meats, sea food, herbs and others things! The price is very accessible and the sellers are very friendly! Don't loose this opportunity to deep dive into the Mexican culture!

Came across this market quite by mistake. Almost didn't pop in. But a counter full of sea food seen through a dark doorway made us have a look. Thank goodness. Lots of stalls selling dried chilis, sauces, fruits, fish, whole geese next to restaurant stalls...More
