Etla is a small town 30-minutes drive up into the surrounding hills of Oaxaca City. Every Wednesday it holds a weekly market spread out from the town's centre, selling all sorts of fresh produce and daily goods that one might need.
I always love the chance to explore a local market and get amongst the locals, so we headed up early to take it all in.
Another drawcard to the area is that of San Augustin Etla - an old textile factory that is now used as a space for the creative arts, as an art school and stunning exhibition space.
It had me wanting to go back to university and visit Mexico on exchange! It looked like an incredible place to study.
If staying in Oaxaca City, definitely make some time to get out of the town explore a little further afield. You won't be disappointed.
next: just a couple more posts from Mexico including our time on the coast, and then it's on to New York and Los Angeles!
