Pochutla Market Tour Overview
When you are wanting to experience authentic Mexican culture, the Pochutla Market Tour should be high on your priority list. It is filled with a rich history of colonial buildings and a native indigenous market.
The Market itself
The Pochutla Market is in Oaxaca and located between Huatulco and Puerto Escondido. It is approximately a 50 minute drive from Huatulco. As you can see in the above video, the market is full of things to do and see. From grinding locally grown produce to flowers and spices, the market has it all. It also has pottery, clothing & small items for the garden and such. Fruits and vegetables include pineapples, watermelons, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and countless others. If fish are your thing, you can also buy recently caught fish in this market. Freshly ground, locally grown & roasted coffee is also a top choice for tourists. Be advised, though, that the focus of the market is much like an organic farmers’ market. It is mostly a place to see, smell & experience authentic Mexican culture. If you are looking for touristy knickknacks, this is not the place for you.
