As Mérida's main market this place has to have grandpa shirts, known locally as guayaberas, baskets in all shapes and sizes, pottery of all kinds and colours, hammocks and panama hats. It has other things besides but this region is specially known for these items, and no market in this region of Mexico would want to disappoint the tourists. The rest of the commercial part of town surrounds the market, so if you can't find it here you'll find it nearby.

The food section of the market is where you can find the local HOT sauce, El Yucateco, which is made of habanero peppers.
