Make sure you map this place because we found no signage and no one around seemed to know it by name. But when you find it you are in (if you enjoy raucous markets) for a treat. All your senses will be in alert. The...More

Color, crowds, chaos. This is a real Mexican market. It goes for blocks in several directions. You can find anything you need here at a reasonable price. It will take patience and a tolerance for narrow aisles. This is well worth checking out even if...More

Geared to everyday shopping needs; meats, vegetables, clothing (limited), jewelry, etc. Bargain prices. With booths located in close proximity to each other, it is easy to overlook parts of the Market. Visit early, it gets crowded fast.

This huge market goes on for blocks. You can find almost everything here. As you wander from stall to stall and section to section every sensory organ is working overtime. Arrive early for best choice of perishables. Allow ample time for exploration. It is easy...More

Must visit for anyone who wants to immerse into local culture and get real feel for local life. Countless rows of colorful fruit stands, clothes, leather products and even life animals. If you are brave enough you can grab something to eat here as well...More
