Sellers of chiles, herbs, crafts, trinkets, and fruit fill this pungent and labyrinthine municipal market. In the early morning the first floor is jammed with housewives and restaurateurs shopping for the freshest seafood and produce. The stairs at Calles 56 and 57 lead to the second-floor Bazar de Artesanías Municipales, on either side, where you'll find local pottery, embroidered clothes, men's guayabera dress shirts, hammocks, and straw bags. Note that most prices are inflated, and vendors expect you'll bargain—one way to begin is to politely request a discount.
Calle 56, between Calles 65 and 67, Mérida, Yucatán, 97000, Mexico
