La Peñita de Jaltemba

    From local artists displaying silver and handmade jewelry, glassware, Talavera pottery, beautiful Oaxacan wool rugs and the famous Huichol Indian beaded artwork – to vendors with carts of ceviche and jumbo shrimp, homemakers selling fresh pastries and linens, and pickup trucks overflowing with poblano peppers and watermelons – you name it, they’ve got it here. This is one of the largest and most well-known markets in the area.

    • Large selection of one-of-a-kind jewelry made with silver, turquoise, pearls, precious stones, feathers, leather and macramé
    • ?Wide assortment of silver jewelry from Taxco

    1. :

      You can get anything you want... No matter what you need; food, housewares, clothes, motor parts, cd's, you can get it here. Prices are often cheaper than the stores and produce is field ripe and awesome! When you are done, walk straight down the street and go to La Avenida for cold beer and seafood. Thursdays are market day!
