  • Enormous central market. Very local so not many English speakers. Crowded but safe. Locals come to buy the freshest fruit, vegetables and spices. There are multiple sections, cookware, produce, butchers and seafood with little street food stands (though I would take care regarding the hygiene with the cooking stalls but their fresh produce is awesome). The best part is the fresh vegetable section. Some of the wet market sections can be a bit intimidating though.
  • This combined with the adjacent Market San Benito creates the enormous central marketplace in Merida. You can easily spend an hour or two wandering through here. It's not "nice" and its definitely not touristy, but it is well worth the visit.
  • A great local market to visit and eat cochinita and some yucatecan food, not commercial and tourist place but if you want to feel like a yucatecan, you have to visit it. Also local fruits you can get there like yuca, tauch, grosellas, local mango, dragon fruit, etc.
  • Huge! Absolutely enormous. Can buy groceries, eat, get a haircut, key cut, shoe repair, buy clothes, buy a pet or kitchen utensils......and on n on.
  • There is a very good dining room called "Las Very Good" is the best place for eat and enjoy the best food since 7:00 until 20 hrs
