If you want to experience the "real" Mexico away from all of the tourist stuff then you need to visit here. It is a huge market and they sell everything from meat to gems. It is crazy big and thank God we had an awesome guide from ShoreExcursioneer that was able to lead us thru it and keep us all... 更多
Lots to see, loads of fruit not seen or heard of in UK. We tried mamey which is worth a go! Avocados the size of small melons. Very busy and tricky to navigate, getting lost is fine, but keeping to children from flagging in the heat is hard!
We loved discovering the spices, the fruits and vegetables. You also have crafts, we purchased a hat and a guayabera and the price was faire for the quality (handmande). Go early in the morning or later at night, it gets very hot (as anywhere else in town)
It goes on for about 7 blocks, it winds and twists, I could buy a piece of raw meat or a cheap souvenir or clothes or a taco. It was the first and last place I visited in Merida. I bought jewelry and other stuff here. I loved the vibe. You have to love walking with a lot of people... 更多
A very large market that has everything under the sun from mounds of dried chilies and herbs, to animals to taco stands. There are tons of people selling different meats and vegetables to fish. Definitely worth a walk around.
Be ready for sensory overload: colors, smells, music, being carried along a stream of people. It is beautiful and overwhelming. Try something new to you, ask questions. Go without expectations and enjoy!
The Lucas de Galvez market is mindbogglingly large and cramped, even for Mexican standards. Not as neat and interesting as in, say, Oaxaca, but well worth a visit. We specifically like to eat breakfast upstairs in the two-story building part of the market, visible from the street near the City Museum. There you get Yucatecan food that has not been... 更多
We arrived with a list of products from a friend who was going to prepare tacos for us. Is was a pleasure going through the immense market trying to find just 5 ingredients. No one pushed us, everybody was polite, directing us to the stalls selling the produce we needed. It was vibrating, exhilarating, particularly after having spent several days... 更多
Wowww !! You think the supermarket is crazy on Christmas eve ? You think the electronic and clothing outlets are nuts on boxing day? This is crazy mexican style! I loved the whole experience- we spent hours pushing our way through the chaos and luckily the locals of Merida and the entire Yucatan are amazing and courteous our this place... 更多
Authentic Mexican market chaotic and packed with hundreds of stalls. It's a world of its own and a definite don't miss if you are in Merida. Just a few blocks from the main square and you are thrown into the real world of the Mexican market. It seems to go on for ever and is housed within several buildings. Be... 更多
