    Oaxaca Market Project

    If you love good food and people watching, the markets are awesome! It's not just about what you find in these spaces, it's who you meet. Markets are a great place to mingle with locals and visitors. If you want to hear Indigenous languages, these public places are great venues.

    We encourage you to learn about the markets before a visit. Intangible heritage of Oaxaca, we salute you!
