A window into local culture and society.
A huge, traditional public market.
You'll find the large cluster of buildings that make up this covered public market bounded by Calle 12 Poniente and 7 Avenida Sur. Inside, thousands of locals buy from from businesses operating out of thousands of stalls - in fact, all the activity can be a little overwhelming at times. But this kind of market is a great window into local life, culture and society (not to mention a marvelous trove of colourful photo opportunities), selling food, textiles, electronics, and household goods.
