40-minute ride east of the Oaxaca (city). The big market is on Sundays, an important element of local life. Impressive array of chiles, grasshoppers, insect larvae, fruits, vegetables, herbs & spices...and the occasional live turkey. Artisanal ware is mostly low-end, but fun to see. Be...More

Sunday market is a huge, bustling open air local event. See, taste, smell Oaxacan life. Eat the food, talk to the vendors, buy some crafts, and watch family life unfold. Take the bus from Oaxaca - to start the trip in Mexican style.

Go on Sunday. The market is huge, encompassing blocks and blocks around the plaza. There is a permanent section which sells meat, flowers and chocolate and then there is the Sunday market that has, seriously, anything else you might ever want. Fresh fruits and vegetables,...More

Amazing cultural experience. A must to do when you visit Oaxaca. Tlacolula De Matamoros Oaxaca has one of the oldest and biggest flee market in Oaxaca. When you visit make sure it's Sunday, for that is the day of the plaza (flee market) make sure...More

Other reviewers have described the market effectively - it is indeed huge, colourful and very Mexican. Not the best choice if quality crafts are your object, but a good days entertainment. My contribution: having just recovered from a bout of Moctezuma's Revenge gained in the...More
