Tour through traditional markets in Mexico City

"Mexico is in its markets", Neruda said. If you want to see why the famous Chilean poet stated such a thing, you must join us on this tour through three of the most impressive traditional markets in Mexico City: La Merced, the Sonora Market and the Mercado San Juan.

To spice up this guided tour through traditional markets in DF, we will make our way around the city as most people do: by foot and using the public transportation system. That will give us a clear and first-hand idea of the way Mexico City inhabitants eat, drink, dress and party.

Markets in Mexico City are magical spots where housewives shop for meat, fruit, vegetables and spices that will be later transformed into delicious dishes. Traditional markets in DF are places where Mexicans catch up on news or have a gossip, where new recipes are gotten and recommendations on pretty much everything are exchanged, too.

On our tour through markets of Mexico City you will find stuff for parties such as piñatas, toys and candy right next to herbal medicine that date from pre-Columbian times. Delicious traditional foods are prepared next to a fortune teller’s stand and right in front of an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe…

In La Merced, a market established since the 18th century, we will see a huge assortment of fruits and vegetables, traditional candy and the always colorful and vibrant daily life of this city’s inhabitants; in the Sonora Market we will walk to a huge and busy area totally dedicated to herbal medicine, as well as to magic and sorcery (that’s why people call it the "Mercado de las Brujas" or "the Witches’ Market"). In the Mercado San Juan we will have the chance of seeing and eating foods that are virtually impossible to find anywhere else in Mexico, such as alligator, lion or stingray meats, European cold cuts or dairy, or fresh Asian vegetables and fruits.

Live the true essence of Mexico through this tour through traditional markets in DF!
