Mercado Benito Juárez - Market Puerto Escondido - Mexico

If you want a local shopping and dining experience rolled into one, try Mercado Benito Juárez (a block from the Zócalo). Meat, fish, produce – some of the best food in Mexico is found at the market. This is a big place, so set aside at least half a day to check out the local goods. Hand-worked leather, black pottery and textiles are among some of the items for sale. On weekends, when indigenous vendors come to sell their wares, Mercado Benito Juárez is particularly busy. This is one of the best places in Puerto Escondido to get an idea of true Mexican culture – there’s no Wal-Mart in this town!
