Travel Tips for Oaxaca

The Markets of Oaxaca

by Casadecolores

It's pretty hard to choose one favorite thing about a place like Oaxaca, but the fabled traditional markets are probably number one in my book. If you stay near the zocalo you are within walking distance of two of Mexico's finest markets. Mercado Juarez sells foods like Oaxaca's famous cheeses ranging from tiny marble sized babies to giants the size of soccer balls, glistening golden fresh egg breads and perfect colorful displays of fresh fruits and vegetables, plus an endless array of gorgeous fresh flowers and crafts. Mercado 20 de Noviembre is chock full of venerable food stalls (fondas) featuring delicious homestyle Oaxacan food. Oaxaca produces and processes both coffee and chocolate, both of which can be ground to order around the market. Step inside for a big soup bowl of either, served up with a big egg bun... a real slice of heaven! I always miss the markets. I love the women selling crispy fried chapulines (little grasshoppers) from huge baskets, an incredible variety of fresh handmade tortillas from thick, tender gorditas made from blue corn to the huge, paper thin tlayudas that are so delicious smeared with a variety of toppings and served up like a giant Mexican pizza... plus so many other tasty treats you will see nowhere else on earth. There truly is no place like Oaxaca.

These pictures of Oaxacans hard at work were taken in my home town of Cabo San Lucas where they had a contingent over Semana Santa. They made me homesick for Oaxaca City!
