Fodor's Review

Sellers of chiles, herbs, seafood, 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 fish and produce. The stairs at Calles 56 and 57 lead to the second-floor Bazar de Artesanías Municipales, where you'll find local pottery, embroidered clothes, guayabera shirts, hammocks, straw bags, sturdy leather huaraches, and piñatas in every imaginable shape and color. Note that most prices are inflated, and vendors expect you'll bargain—one way to begin is to politely request a discount. Be wary of pickpockets within the market.
