There are a dozen, if not more, destination markets in the towns outside outside of Oaxaca City, but within closer reach is Mercado Benito Juárez, a block south of the town’s central square. This indoor market spills over with produce (oranges, mangos, cactus paddles), spices and dried chiles, and regional specialties like chapulines (grasshoppers) and quesillo (a stringy white cheese).
