La Merced

FLICKR ALBUM: La Merced


Oaxaca City's La Merced Market is located eight blocks east of the Zócalo on Insurgentes between Morelos and Murguía. It's also known as Mercado Democracia.

SPECIALITES

Specialities at this traditional Oaxacan market include fresh bread, cheeses, tamales and hand-made tortillas. La Güerita serves memelas and empanadas. Try the huitlacoche!

There are numerous eateries (comedores) and places to buy carry-out tamales.

CHECK OUT

Fonda Florecita, Local #37
- Tasty tlayudas, memelas and enchiladas

LOCATION

La Merced Market is a few blocks east of La Merced Church.

OAXACA MARKET PROJECT

La Merced Market is documented in the Oaxaca Market Project, an initiative of Planeta.com and friends in Oaxaca. We ask visitors to print photos (seen here archived on Flickr) and give them to the vendors. This puts a new spin on the traditional 'take only photographs' mantra by giving the photos back and raising awareness and increasing purchases of traditional crafts and local food.

What might be a rushed visit becomes a search for familiar faces and seasonal products. This guide encourages you to learn about the markets before a visit. Enjoy!
