How to See Two Great Mercados
in the Mexico City Area

The best way to fix in your mind what a "real Mexican mercado" is like is to go see one for yourself. You can do this, even if your Spanish is almost nonexistent, and you are just making a brief trip to Mexico City.

  • Mexico City's Merced Market
  • Tepoztlan's Sunday Tianguis
