Pure chaos! I loved it! The Pasillo de Humo (alley of smoke) was just an amazingly fun experience. You pick your meat, they find a place for you to sit, you buy your condiments and drinks, then they bring the cooked meat and tortillas to you and... yum from there! If you can stand noise and chaos, and sharing your tables with some locals... and a very smokey room (from all the grills), this place will have your mouth watering for more! I recommend the cecina, and don't forget the grilled onions for your condiments.

I must during a visit to Oaxaca, fresh chickens, produce, bread.
There is an enclosed "alley" with multiple vendors selling meats by the kilo who then grill it for you. Purchase vegatables, salsas and tortillas separately.

A real treat!!

There is a little something for everyone at this market from food to clothing to home goods. All of the eat in restaurants were full when we visited before noon. Being from North America we are not accustomed to shopping for our fruits, vegetables and meats the way they do in the Mercado. Fun experience and lots more shopping on the nearby streets as well.

I ate here and food-stall-hopped at least 4x in Oaxaca. The food is great, lots of locals and tourists dine here. Plenty of seasonal, fresh fruit, meat, cheese and tlayudas, tamales and tacos and sopas to be had plus Oaxacan Chocolate, which is amazing.

Only a food market. Seems that all the locals, ALL OF THEM, can be here eating so therefore the street food in here must be good. However, I was on the hunt for gifts for home and found that more helpful next door at Mercado Benito Juarez!

Mole, mangoes, chico zapote, tlayudas, tostadas, fresh juices, breads, and more, so much more. It is a feast for all your senses. Such good and cheap eats. Grab a couple of bags of mole paste to take home as a delicious souvenir. I would have eaten here every day if not for my travel partner, who wanted a finer dining experience for a couple of meals.

Honestly. We would have eaten here every day if we had decided to try earlier on the trip.

Huge mexican pizzas for $3. Amazing hot chocolates. Mole. Mole. Mole.

And if you follow the smoke. An array of meats on the grill from a dozen vendors.

Simply a must try when you are here.

The Mercado 20 de Noviembre houses a collection of fondas - small restaurants and food stalls - and they each deserve separate reviews. A steady stream of local visitors and Mexican tourists helps to keep quality high and there is a variety of Oaxacan specialties on offer.

For many, the most memorable part of the 20 de Noviembre is the tight corridor where charcoal grilled pork, beef and sausage raise huge fragrant clouds of smoke. It is a vegetarian's nightmare (or downfall). By the end of your walk past the throng of vendors announcing there wares (essentially all of them offer the identical selection of cecina, tasajo and chorizo), you are overwhelmed by the aroma and the intensity. At the right time of the day (2-5 pm), there is sensory overload.

Take your time. Walk back through the grills and select a vendor. Order by weight - two people can be happy with an order of half a kilo of meat. Take your numbered tag back to the seating area. Someone will help you find somewhere to sit and will take your order for tortillas, guacamole, salsas, 'ensaladas', drinks, etc. The food is what it appears to be: straight-ahead, assured, and tasty. It will be one of your most memorable (and enjoyable) meals in the city. Leave your white table cloth pretensions at home.

Return to the market at some other time to sample the more conventional places, where you will find excellent food prepared to local taste.
