Mercado Sánchez Pascuas

Market in Oaxaca City

The local's choice, this small indoor food market is where you'll end up shopping when you book a cooking class and go out searching for ingredients.

Its comedores (food stalls) provide a down-to-earth Oaxacan eating experience: head to the ones toward the west end (where you eat at counters right in front of the cooks), ask for a tamal, memela or empanada, and practice your Spanish in deciding what you want on or in it.
