Anything and everything you could want you could find there. From a cows heart to a trinket for a child. I loved getting to try all the different flavors of chapulines.

There is so much to see in this market, so many flavors, colors, items...and the good thing is that as a foreigner they let you just stroll around without getting hassled in any way. Thanks folks!

Great place to buy some mezcal, local hot sauces and spices. They even have a good court area where u can buy snacks.

Hi Jonathan, I'm not sure why it's showing that way, the market is very close to the Zocalo in the center of town. Have fun!
