This market is brilliant. Full of stalls of every kind from shoes to bread to bbq to live chickens! It was bustling with local people doing their shopping, hardly a tourist in sight! Had a delicious dulce de leche creo, and if I hadn’t had...More
The Sunday street market sprawls out from the bus station via the church to teh market building and is one of the best markets in the area. It is mostly a local market but there are also some tiny areas to be found that sell...More

40-minute ride east of the Oaxaca (city). The big market is on Sundays, an important element of local life. Impressive array of chiles, grasshoppers, insect larvae, fruits, vegetables, herbs & spices...and the occasional live turkey. Artisanal ware is mostly low-end, but fun to see. Be...More
This bustling market is not to be missed if you can be here in a Sunday. It’s an easy bus or collectivo trip from Oaxaca and we highly recommend doing it. So much fun to see what is available but also to glimpse the social...More
Having spent four days in Tlacolula, I got a sense of the rhythm of the fascinating thru day and night. Food stalls, huge bread offerings - not often seen, beautiful , traditional crafts of the region, fruits, veggies, herbs, etc. Indigenous peoples selling blue corn...More
Everything is available here- - so much color and variety. It was very much worth taking a local bus out of Oaxaca for the Sunday market! We spent lots of time walking everywhere, tasting snacks along the way, having lunch of cooked meats and tortillas......More
Sunday market is a huge, bustling open air local event. See, taste, smell Oaxacan life. Eat the food, talk to the vendors, buy some crafts, and watch family life unfold. Take the bus from Oaxaca - to start the trip in Mexican style.
Go on Sunday. The market is huge, encompassing blocks and blocks around the plaza. There is a permanent section which sells meat, flowers and chocolate and then there is the Sunday market that has, seriously, anything else you might ever want. Fresh fruits and vegetables,...More

Public transportation is easy and cheap! Go to the second class bus station near Abastos. I've taken the bus (check with the station chief and read the destinations across the bus windshields). Take change for the bus = seems to me it was 10-15 pesos when I went last. You can also get a collectivo just outside the bus station - maroon and white taxis - which also note their destinations across the windshields or the back window. Don't be alarmed - collectivos stop en route and pick-up and discharge passengers. Sit in the back seat, if you can, so you won't have to sit on the gear shift if a fifth passenger shows up. Return to Oaxaca with readily available collectivos in Tlacolula or through the same bus station where you arrived. People are very nice on the bus, but few speak English. Sweet adventure!
