Explore the village market and find a universe of pre-Hispanic flavors, dishes and countless handicrafts.

Marvel at the creativity of Tepoztlan artisans during the weekend and take home all kind of products directly from their creators. You can purchase wooden toys, furniture, cotton dresses, miniature animals, guitars, pre-Hispanic musical instruments, teponaxtles, aromatic candles, basketwork, yarn, ceramics, clothing and jewelry. 


After your walk through the market made you hungry, be sure to stop for lunch. Prepare yourself for the best and spoil yourself during lunchtime. Savor a delicious turkey in red mole or a thin tamal, a holiday delicacy. See how the wide variety of Mexican dishes are often served in locally made clay pots. 


If you fancy exotic flavors, this place is for you. Savor a mushroom or lentil soup with plantains; eat a few huauzontles (a Mexican vegetable) or have Yecapixtla beef tacos with colorful tortitas made with Teompantli tree flowers. Be sure to have them served with some cream, cheese, charro beans and avocado on the side. If you want a peculiar culinary experience, ask for some eatable insects and put them in a tortilla.
