  • If you want to see an infinite wins of vivid colors, you must visit the San Cristobal handicraft market... but beware there are bad and good quality craftsmanship, attempts to ask many questions about where they shop and not be inspired by the most cheap.

  • I love to come to this place, why are all the flavours, colours and traditions of Chiapas, here the culture of all of its nearby villages is mixed and seems a market of barter, from vegetables, cheese, chicken, meats, seeds, species and seasonings, crafts, herbs, natural medicines, etc.

  • Amazing experience, v cool, all my senses were attacked in a good way, you get to see authentic mexico and its ppl here. I was obsessed, just walked around taking it all in. Absolutely worth it
  • Ah the mercado. This is one of the stellar mercados in Mexico, why?, because it is alive, it is colorful, it is filled with amazing products and one can visit everyday and still never see all that are available. Go early and stay hours. Go on Saturday to see the products that are from the outlying areas of San Cristobal. Truly a gem
  • Nice, but a bit expensive, great food and atmosphere, good music but very loud, the stuff is really nice.
  • Full of culture and food, it's a great place to check out while you're in SAN Cristobal.
  • I like it
