This market is a joyous assault on the senses. With nearly every turn, we saw something we had never seen before. It's an experience you shouldn't miss.

This was large enough to get a great selection of foods available to the local population. If you are a vegetarian or a vegan keep away from the meat and fish sections. These is a toilet too. Well worth 20 mins.

I guess that people come here mostly for the "exotic" food that's on sale. Several stalls in the food section serve and sell grasshoppers, worms, scorpions, slugs, snails, as well as wild boar, ostrich, venison, and other "delicacies." Of course, every other kind of foodstuff...More

wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may

No, there are none. But there is a very big and very good Artesanial Mercado of the same name 'San Juan' in the next street over (at Ayuntamiento 22-28).

As far as I know it's open 7 days a week, and from early morning until late afternoon, or around 6:00 pm.
