  • This is a great market with great little restaurants and lots of shops filled with merchandise and spices and lots of fresh produce sold by many different vendors so if one produce section doesn't have something they will let you know someone that does. They have a great little place across from the restaurants that sells the best chorizo and Mexican cheeses. This is a locals neighborhood market and is located downtown out of the touristy hotel zone. People are less urgent to bother you to buy something than market 28. My husband and I bought things here to make for dinner in the condo we were staying at.
  • Tired of that huge souvenir store called market 28? Want to see a real, old-fashioned Marketplace? This one is hardly the spectacle of a marketplace in an old Mexican city, but it is the closest thing to the real deal in Cancun. Furthermore, what better souvenirs than shirts and dresses that the locals actually use, or even something as wild as a voodoo doll, rather than a stupid T-shirt?
  • As of today, this place is not closed. This is not a tourist place, locals shop here, grab freshly made tortillas, carnes, home goods and do a little shopping like talavera goods, playeras etc. I dont know why Google says its closed, it is not.
  • Great little market to enjoy business as usual with the locals. Resteraurants all smelled amazing!
  • This place offers local specialities and unforgetable atmosphere!
