  • It is the ideal place to enjoy the Yucatecan snacks at very good prices. Jobs called much attention for its decoration and colors. It is located very close to the main square.

  • Great place to spend a few hours immersed in authentic Mexican everyday life. No tourist traps here just cheap (and inexpensive) merchandise, fresh produce, and dozens of cheap eats places that serve the usual, and some unusual Mexican dishes. A side of Mexico that you are not likely to see any other place. Every town or city we visit, Mercado principal or (sometimes called municipal) is on our must visit list.
  • Very crowded. Great place to go if you just want to wander and look at all the vendors. If you know what you want and don't know where to look, you could be in there for a while. If you are sensitive to smells, you'll need to hold your breath as you pass some areas. Between the meats, garbage, and different foods cooking, some of the areas smelled a little funky. We did find some good deals on some food and gifts. Always fund to haggle over prices.
  • Lucas de Gálvez Market is a great place to explore when visiting Merida. It is a must if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture. Try local fruits and the street food it's amazing! Support local farmers and local economy.
  • Glad we went and an interesting place to visit but would never trust to eat there. Definitely not a clean place.
  • Cheap, tasty Mayan fast food from little stalls. I give an extra star for the low prices.
