Chocolate, mezcal, mole and woven textiles. These are what Oaxaca is famous for and what you should make a priority in your shopping adventure. With an abundance of choices, from small shops, cooperatives, the famous mercados (Central de Abastos and Mercado Ju├írez) and the many street vendors, your main goal should be to come away with your purchase and a memorable experience. Prices in shops are usually set as marked. Haggling with merchants can save you a few pesos and can be entertaining but remember to respect the artisan and the art.
