    The really enjoyable thing about this market is that it isn’t just a market targeting tourists. It contains a little bit of everything - fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, clothes, souvenirs, food and drink vendors , etc. It’s free to enter and quite enjoyable to go through. The vendors weren’t pushy. Prices seemed reasonable. It took us about an hour to peruse the wares. Given its close proximity to the zocalo it would be a worth wild place to visit for tourists.

    Went here yesterday to get a few items such as chiles, mole, and a few souvenirs as well. Market is bigger than I would have thought!

    I visited this gallery three times while Oaxaca for a month. They not only had exquisitely designed alebrijes by reknown artists, they had pieces that were very affordable, like the hummingbirds I bought to decorate our holiday tree later this year. If you have detailed questions that your Spanish level cannot manage, there is someone there who can help you. We will be returning again next year to see their fine assortment of alebrijes!

    This is very slightly off the beaten track and mostly frequented by locals. There is a wide variety of textiles at reasonable prices. I've seen mention of ceramics, but found only one person selling them.

    Excellent, beautifully curated collection of folk art from Oaxaca. You can trust that this is the real deal. There are some things which are priced high-masterworks from artisans who command high prices, but there are also affordable and delightful things there.
    Something for everyone, but always very good quality.

    Went to Central de Abasto (Mercado) and then to Mémelas Doña Vale (Memelas). Got the Memelas de Salsa Morita con Tasajo/Beef and Memela de Salsa Roja with Egg.
    Afterwards walked the market some and then went to Mayordomo for some chocolates.

    We were taken to Mercado Sanchez Pascuas by our guide Betsy on the Oaxacan Street Food Tour (highly recommended). This is not as popular with tourists as the more famous Mercado Benito Juarez or 20th de Noviembre, but is a great market that is a little less crowded and has a full range of great retail food stalls and mini-restaurants. It is north of Templo Santo Domingo and worth a visit. My impression is that this market is more popular with local people, as opposed to tourists.

    Came to this workshop at the recommendation of our taxi driver/tour guide. Absolutely worth it, about 20 mins from Oaxaca after seeing the ruins on Monte Alban. The workshop is completely family owned and operated and tells a great history and evolution of these cool figurines to whet we know today. No pressure to buy anything, but tons of cute things to take home as souvenirs. They also take credit cards, which was awesome.

    Most of the art galleries give only fleeting coverage of textiles. Not this one ceramics are front and center here and well worth a visit even if you are not interested necessarily in buying.

    As a monumental building is being retired, they are located at #310, several blocks closer to the center. They expect the old location to be ready in February or March.

    Has some interesting things including paintings. Only worth visiting if you go to the government palace itself. Everything in Spanish so be forewarned.

    This gallery highlights the works of emerging artists. The curator, Dulce María Méndez García, presents both local and American artists.

    The market in Ocotlan is a bustling place offering a nice array of fresh fruits and vegetables, and dry goods. Vendors selling mescal (strong), fresh empanadas (delicious), pulque (OK). When we were there, vendors had Day of the Dead items, ad there were displays of Day of the Dead ofrendas.
