Mercado 28 is a market in downtown Cancun in a local residential area. It's a classic Mexican market you'll find in every town, but the difference here is the prices are highly inflated and sellers much more aggressive. No wonder it's like that, as it's set in a highly popular resort town and tourist are coming here thinking the prices are cheaper than in their hotels (actually they're not). Also, the lack of tourists due to Covid contributed to that. So, if you came here for souvenirs and presents for your home loved ones, be prepared for heavy haggling, dividing the asked price by 4 as your start price. We bought nothing here, but in towns of Merida and Valladolid - better quality for lower price and without harassing sellers.

Horrible place, aggressive sellers shouting at you and laughing sarcastically if you don't react to them, walked out 2 minutes after walking in, I strongly recommend to not go here

We left within 10 minutes of getting there. All of the shops sell the same basic things and the shop owners are very aggressive. Skip 28 and go to 23.

It’s a Mercado in mexico expect lots of trinkets many fake items and initial prices that are 10-20x what they should be. If you know what things are worth. Go have fun. These folks are way less pressure than others. Plenty of restaurants too. But don’t comedy it to be haggle free. Go with an open mind and don’t get attached. Walk if not a good price

Buyer beware at this scam artist shop. These guys are complete con artists- overpriced on every single item and questionable authenticity on all gemstones. Silver jewelry should always be stamped. Silver jewelry should also be weighed in front of buyer to determine value. These guys do not do this and instead price merchandise simply based on what they think patrons will pay. As a long time collector/purchaser of Mexican silver jewelry I couldn’t get out of here fast enough. I feel sorry for the people paying hundreds of dollars for $40 dollar pieces..... if they are even genuine.... The store is a good location but save yourself the headache, smarmy sales people and protect your pocket book by not going.
