Essentials

Travel Tip: If you have limited time in Oaxaca City and are a big fan of textiles, check out the Friday/Saturday Pochimilco Market which features quality textiles from from Ayuuk, Chinanteco and Zapotec artisans. Highlights include original designs from Teotitlan weavers Angela Mendoza and Reynaldo Sosa and huipiles from Ayuuk and Chinanteco communities. Julio sells rebozos that can be used by nursing mothers to carry babies.

For quality textiles, visit Adolfina, Ayuuk Tienda, Los Baules and Mujeres Artesanas de las Regiones de Oaxaca (MARO).
