If you like chocolate and if you’re visiting Oaxaca, my personal recommendation is purchasing Lucia’s homemade Chocoluchy, a special treat during Muertos.
You’ll find chocolate maker Lucia Diaz Gonzalez selling her chocolates in person at the Pochimilco Market (Colonia Xochimilco) on Fridays and Saturdays, 9am-3pm. You can find her chocolates at stores including Bambu and Grupo Lula’a.
