Not so touristy! There were a lot of locals when i was there which I really like when i travel. So much food that I couldn't decide. If you visit the market, you should try "Pan de yama" which is bread and hot chocolate. Delicious!

This very large market is where you can find just about anything you might need or want, from clothing of all sorts, food of every type, household products - it is a very enjoyable cultural experience. The vendors are generally very helpful & want to please.

We always go to the local peoples' market straight off. This clean and covered market is stuffed with small stalls carrying meat, produce, mole , spices, chocolate, liquor, clothes and souvenirs. Also fast food stalls and great agua frescas. We eat a lot of fruit and were thrilled with a vendor who would section grapefruit and peel, slice jicama. Since... More

Located just a block south and a block west of the zocalo, the Juarez market immediately immerses visitors in the color and aroma and flavors of indigenous Oaxacan arts, crafts, and cuisine. Dresses and rebozos and huipiles, serapes and blankets. Alebrijes. Herbs and mole and coffee. Vegetables and, for the brave, dried locusts eaten like popcorn. And so much more.... More

The Benito Juarez Market is a must-do wander when in Oaxaca City. I stayed in Oaxaca for over two weeks and visited the flower aisle of the market every day--amazing!! I am from the Midwest and the flowers we get are of the pre-packaged, pathetic variety, and very expensive. Witness the profusion and artistry of the various stalls. You may... More

I stopped in just once, looking for some black mole to take home with me. It is an amazing place, with fixed stalls selling about everything you can imagine, from raw meat to fancy embroideries. I saw another review that warned one to be careful of pickpockets, but when I was there mid-day it was not crowded enough to make... More

There is a line of meat stalls with grills. you select your meet. They sell you condiments (guacamole, salsas, avocado, tortillas, etc) beers or sodas and the meat arrives.
