I always enjoy walking through the mercado downtown. We usually take the city bus from El Cid to downtown. Lots to see and to buy!

Alberto sells huaraches there and I bought 4 pairs...for myself, my grand daughter and grand son. The food, fish, clothes, you can find everything there.

We always go and eat and walk around the Mercado. This is where the real Mazatlan is!

If you've grown up in white-bread America and have never been to a market in another country, you really must go! The produce is beautiful, the crafts are local and interesting. But my favorite is the pig heads and the full cows being butchered on site. Something everyone should experience!

As travelers who like to experience the local culture, a visit to Old Mazatlan rather than the Golden/Hotel zone was necessary. The market was a great place - authentic and variety of options from food, to touristy items, to every day items. Also, if you visit Mexico you HAVE to have one of their real fruit frozen bars - and the market is the cheap and easy way to do that.
If you want your typical tourist crap - this is not the market you are thinking of.
