  • We visited this bustling Oaxacan market with Gina Machorro whose knowledge and contacts are superb. She first gave us the proper local way to visit by putting us aboard a local collectivo, a unique ex...  more »
  • Rich food and still very good price. Excellent for breakfast, the flip-flops are bad and expensive if they occupy better buy the Aurrera. There you can find a place that sells a great mezcal

  • Here you can discover a small, typical Mexican market Hall. You can get a good insight into the life of the locals. There are many stands for things of everyday life, flowers and food. You should allow approximately one hour for a tour. The people are very nice. Nice atmosphere. Worth a visit, but if you have little time the location is not a "must" as there are in major cities but richer markets.

  • Fun market to go to, we got a nice fresh orange juice for just 30 pesos a liter. Food can be unpleasant tough, but that comes with mexican culture I guess. I suggest you buy fruits and veggies outside of the market, they tend to be cheaper and of better quality. despite the fact that we're close to the sea, fishes remain pretty expensive and might not be that fresh after all.
  • Awesome mix of everything local; great & super affordable food & produce.
  • Love this market. Fresh, well priced and friendly.
  • Great market, heaps of variety and wonderful fresh produce.
  • Mercado Benito Juárez from its origin to today has established itself in infrastructure and service. It is a place in which supply quality, freshness in their products, variety, cleaning, attention to the customer and human warmth combined to meet your needs with excellent service. Visit and purchase products of quality and freshness made in Oaxaca.
