    • Authentic regional market with a bit of everything from iron implements to artesania

      Take the bus from Oaxaca to Tlacolula and go back in time. The market has aspects that are pre-hispanic alongside modern artesania and mountains of food, clothing and even souvenirs. Leave most of the day so you are not rushed.

      You know that it is going to be a big market when the stalls start about 3/4 of a km from the actual market building. This is a real local market with everything. There are different layers to the market that you can see as you walk around. You will eat your way from one end to the other. Take a local guide - it will make it easier to want to dive in to something new. Fruit, cheese, beef, sausage, bread, ice cream, and of course chapolines and the worm salt. Very friendly and no security concerns. Keep an eye on your valuables since it is an easy target for pickpockets due to the crowds.

      It's very easy and inexpensive to get to the market by taking colectivos. A lot of the vendors do seem to start packing up in the early afternoon, so if there's something you want but don't want to pick it up right away, it might be a good idea to ask the vendor how long they plan to stay open (they still might be closed before you get back, but at least you can budget some time and try). I was looking for wool goods, especially because I didn't get to spend as much time in Mitla as I wanted. There's a whole street of wool (and other textiles, but a lot of wool). A lot of the stuff doesn't look handwoven, but the wool stuff I had my eye on seemed like decent quality and extremely affordable. I bought a wool poncho for something like 200 pesos and it's so nice and warm when I'm camping. It's very similar to the ponchos I saw lots of Oaxacan women wearing to keep warm at night, not the tacky ones you see at every tourist trap in Mexico. The cheesy, colorful ponchos are cheaper than that, but they appear to just be machine-made synthetic fabrics. There is tons of food. Different sections of food, all over the market. Sometimes food stalls show up in random places. You need to be careful and not eat too much too fast, because you never know what else you're going to see and you'll want room for stuff you find later. If you're looking for any kind of traditional Oaxacan food, you'll probably find it here. A lot of the goods are more for the locals who come to the market on the weekend to do their shopping. You can go there and buy your socks and underwear if you want to. Or maybe you need a new phone charger, some razor blades, and some dish soap. There aren't a lot of souvenir type things, it is a very local market, but there are a couple sections where you will find some neat stuff. All in all, it's very interesting to see and worth visiting, at least for the food. You don't really need a guide unless you are intimidated by large local markets, but some level of Spanish is definitely recommended if you want to converse or barter with anyone. You can easily get a colectivo back to town, but we had to ask a few locals where to go because they only wait for passengers in a certain area.

    • Authentic indigenous market

      We enjoyed the variety of items sold, the authentic indigenous outfits, the crafts, the produce, herbs and especially a row of women standing, what seemed to me, randomly, in the middle of the mercado forming a row, each one selling their own stuff

      The Tlacolula Sunday Market is the largest indigenous market in Southern Mexico. We hired a driver to take us and act as our guide, although it is possible to do this journey on your own. Given our limited knowledge and time available the driver/guide option turned out to be worth it. We arrived early enough to see some villagers bringing articles and animals for sale while others were setting up stalls and getting organized for the busy day. Our guide showed us to the big halls with the smoked meats and loads of vegetables. We enjoyed wandering a bit but felt comfortable that we would not get lost in the vastness of this market. Our guide showed us an interesting side visit to the 16th century Dominican church with its richly decorated interior. We paused for a light breakfast/brunch at Comedor Mary, an apparent favourite of our driver and appreciated by us as well. I took a few photos while wandering the aisles of this market but felt I was intruding because this isnt a super touristy place. I did see more tourist types however, as we were leaving. I think we saw maybe an eighth of this market but that was because we wanted to go to another nearby village on this same trip.
