  • As far as I can tell, there is no good reason for a tourist to visit Mercado Merced, or the adjoining Mercado Sonora. The warren of narrow aisles and the constant pedestrian rush discourage browsing o...  more »

  • This is a great place to buy anything at the cheapest prices. But this is a red zone for gangs and one of the most dangerous places in el cenrto. I was put a knife to my face and was forced to give up...  more »

  • This market has unusual esoteric goods for sale for cheap. It is a feast for the eyes. They also sell animals that seem unhappy to be there packed into small cages or too young to be away from their mothers. That part is sad. Don't even wear a chain around your neck or earings if you go here. My gold chain was ripped off my neck. It was still worth going for the unique cultural experience.
  • Exciting, vibrant and hectic - an assault on the senses - in a good way. Spent the whole day, guided by locals, touring this massive market, checking out all the amazing food and wares. Was told to be careful here, but we never had any problems - just stay alert - but you you can easily lose your way and sense of direction. When snapping photos, try not to get in the way of people working and going about their daily lives. So many amazing food stalls here. One of the best experiences I had in the CDMX.
  • Yuge! Busy! Amazing! Get a guided tour, it's awesome!
  • It is huge. And super intimidating. If you grew up in Asia and have been to wet markets.. It's a super sized version. I really wanted to try some of the street food, but there were too many flies, dirt etc I didn't dare!
  • This is a massive, sprawling and crowded market that could be best described as organized chaos, but it is well worth the visit. Whether or not you speak Spanish I recommend taking a guided tour (or know a local)... We took the tour with Eat Mexico and the guide and tour were excellent.
