Great place to buy a bag of fresh figs for a dollar or so. Counters with great sandwiches. Dogs laying around. Friendly people. Just an all around nice place.

I had to go see the clocktower by Eiffel and then check out the market. My tour of the indoors lasted only a few minutes when I was on the second floor and spotted a decaying bird surrounded by copious bird poop on the roof...More

This is the main Market in the city. Is a functioning market for food and goods for locals. It also has a good selection of souvenirs for visitors. This is definitely a must-see while in town.

There is the usual mix of foods (prepared and raw) and other items Mexican residents use (a locksmith, pharmacy items, some clothing, some electronics, etc.) If you've not been to other such places, you should go.

The building itself has history and is old. Lots to find under one roof, from hand crafts, to chachkas, to fresh produce.
