Mercado Benito Juárez — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Market • (C)
Located one block south of the Zócalo, the one-block square Mercado Benito Juárez was the City's original market. However, today, because of that proximity, it's the most touristy of the major markets, so it's important to be discerning when shopping here because the stuff sold is a mix of trash and treasure. Still, its worth a visit and deals can be found here among a variety of goods: fresh produce, seafood, meats, regional pottery and other traditional crafts, contemporary clothes and shoes, and leather goods.
- One block south of the Zócalo between 20 de Noviembre and Flores Magón; South of Independencia, Centro Histórico; daily 9 am - 9 pm.
