A good resource for someone who has never been here before. Yes, there are many markets wher textiles and weaving are available in great abundance in the City. You can read about them on the site that I have given you. It´s run by the Mexican government, but it is quite good and accurate. It gave me a real feeling for Oaxaca before I first came here.

I´m sure that the oaxaca travel guide link will tell you about the Casa Mujeres (Women´s House), but what you should know is that this is an organization that brings crafts people of all types, including weavers, into the city to a central location where they practice, refine and learn new methods in their crafts. At the main location, you can watch them working and ask them questions. Around the corner is a huge 3 story building where their work is available for sale, at very fair prices.

You might find something similar in the market for slightly less, but you really have to know what you are doing to buy in the markets. Some goods are imported, some machine made instead of produced on the traditional back-strap looms.

If you would like any more information, or just to chat about Oaxaca send me an e-mail at: fusedmax@gmail.com

Good luck on your travels, I look forward to meeting you in the Zocallo some day.

Travel Tips for Oaxaca de Juárez

Oaxaca de Juárez Tip

by pobrecita

Oaxaca is really a charming, old city. It is the capital of the state of Oaxaca. I found the city to be very clean, and they sky was a pure, dark blue. The architecture, especially of the churches and the buildings around the zocalo, was fascinating and made for stunning photos.

Bugs? To Eat? Really?

by kandl1

Chapulines, or grasshoppers are a common sight in the streets of Oaxaca. Don't look down, you wont find them there. These grasshoppers are food...for people. On most street corners in Oaxaca, and especially near the central market, you'll see mounds of these brightly colored bugs, cooked and ready to eat.
You can get tiny "baby" ones or the large and chewy grande-sized versions, but they all prepared the same way.
Cooked in chile and lime, they're crispy and bright red. In the raw (alive) state, they are your typical green grasshoppers.

The Taste:
Crunchy, like corn chips, with a chile-lime-salt flavor. The bigger ones are chewier with a mild, but odd flavor.

Boxing Gym, Oaxaca

by wavesport

If you're a boxer or a boxer wannabe visiting Oaxaca, you can keep up your skills hitting heavy and speed bags at this boxing gym. There's no ring. It's a small place, but it's always full with 20-something age "contenders." I wish I knew where they fought. I don't know the cost to use this gym. You might want to bring your own gloves. The only equipment that I saw were heavy and speed bags. There was NO cardio machines or weightlifting equipment.

A different view of Monte Alban

by sdhaley

Monte Alban is a major archaeological site and most people take a bus up and a guided tour. For something different, you coould climb the adjacent hill that not only has a unique view of the reconstructed part of Monte Alban, it has another yet untouched portion of the ruins to explore. Of course, you should not take any of the artifacts that you might find up there. The top of the hill also offers wonderful views of the city and the surrounding countryside and is an ideal place for a picnic.
Starting from the entrance to the town of Sta. Maria Atzompa, head uphill (to the southeast). You can follow a dirt road and foot path to the top. It is worth the hike.

Worlds Biggest Biomass

by Enzyme_X

Just 10 km east of Oaxaca in a small village a tree (42m high, 58 circumference, 3000 year old type of cypress) grows. If you ever wanted to feel like a dwarf than you should go there :-).
