This is the main Market in the city. Is a functioning market for food and goods for locals. It also has a good selection of souvenirs for visitors. This is definitely a must-see while in town.

There is the usual mix of foods (prepared and raw) and other items Mexican residents use (a locksmith, pharmacy items, some clothing, some electronics, etc.) If you've not been to other such places, you should go.

The building itself has history and is old. Lots to find under one roof, from hand crafts, to chachkas, to fresh produce.

The building was impressive but the market itself was messy and fairly ordinary. Worth a look just for the architecture and to see how the locals shop.

This is a nice covered market, quite organized and clean compared to may mercados in Mexico. Lots of 'crafts'- and some not seen elsewhere, along with fruit and vegetables and lots of food stalls. Nice to walk around the 2nd floor balcony and look down...More

Many stalls with all imaginable items for sale. Lots of hustle and bustle. Has an upstairs area with many vendors of interesting items. Lots of food vendors with tasty food for sale. Worth a visit, for sure.
