What people say

"The home of inexpensive Oaxaca souvenirs, this mercado is a buzzing hub of color and craft. Discover every gift imaginable to delight a gringo heart — flower headbands, lucha libre masks, embroidered purses, leather goods, traditional Oaxacan garments, cheap tee shirts, and more. From here, you can stroll straight through to the abutting Mercado 20 de Novembre (prepared food — especially smoked meats) and the Oaxaca Artisan Market (downmarket alebrije carvings) for even more visual stimulation and low-cost wares. "
