FLICKR ALBUM: Sánchez Pascuas


In 2017 this market will celebrate its 45th anniversary. Here's the 40th anniversary poster for 2012!

HISTORY

Oaxaca City's Sánchez Pascuas Market was founded on September 19, 1972 after being relocated from the plaza south of the Carmen Alto Church. The market specializes in fresh vegetables and fruits, local cheeses, good food and crafts.

FESTIVALS

The market celebrates the Saint Carmen feast day as well as the Guelaguetza.

SPECIALTIES

The market has great family own-restaurants (comedores) as well stands that sell take out. Buy your nopalitos by the bag or fresh salsa and tortillas.

Among the comedores are Fondas Oaxaqueña, Normita, Lupita, Nelly, Chonchita and Yolis. Fonda Oaxaqueña serves excellent embaradas.

In the morning great tamales. vendors include Tamales Cande. There are also memelas from the fire-hot comal.

Fresh juices are sold at Jugos Angelita and Jugos Yesena.

Sweets are sold at Postres Regionales Tolita.

On weekends there are houseplants and locally made furniture for sale.

Cheeses come from nearby Etla, in particular the villages of Matadamas Etla, Guadalupe de Hidalgo Etla and Santo Domingo Barrio Bajo.

CRAFTS

In addition to food products, the market also sells traditional green pottery from Atzompa (Ruben Enriques Juárez) and weavings from Teotitlán del Valle (Angela Mendoza).

NATURAL WORLD

A large laurel tree anchors the plaza on the eastern side of the market. On the west side there is a beautiful flamboyant tree that blooms in April and May.

OAXACA MARKET PROJECT

Sánchez Pascuas 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 return these copies back 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!
