Lots of stuff for sale from grasshoppers to leather goods to ice cream! Very inexpensive! People not pushy although there are some who walk around trying to sell, but those aren't the people in the booths.

Wow! If you can imagine it, you will find it here. Clothes, shoes, food, spices, chilies, gifts and more. Make sure to plan for several hours if you are a real shopping hound.

Anything and everything you could want you could find there. From a cows heart to a trinket for a child. I loved getting to try all the different flavors of chapulines.

There is so much to see in this market, so many flavors, colors, items...and the good thing is that as a foreigner they let you just stroll around without getting hassled in any way. Thanks folks!

Hi Jonathan, I'm not sure why it's showing that way, the market is very close to the Zocalo in the center of town. Have fun!

I preferred the weekday so that it wasn't soooo congested, but that's just a personal preference.
