  • I went out of curiosity and there is nothing good to do. The food is not good, I would say greasy and bad taste. I like the the food outside and in other posts that there. I went on two occasions. Water-filled Halls and things that sell not of much interest to my.

  • Amazing place. Disclaimer: everyone I talked to told me not to go cuz I'll get mugged in there. That said, as you will see in my pix, it is very narrow in there which is ideal for pick pockets. Don't be too flashy and hid your valuables in your socks. Now to the market, it is section after section after section of everything under the sun. I love the candy section and fruits and vegetables. I recommend it but be careful of your belongings.
  • Bought several different kinds of mole paste here. The folks at Casa Chivista were super helpful. They are by puerta 9.
  • Chaos but the place has everything you can find. A big place divided by type of groceries. Cheaper than any supermarket. It is not clean. For safety take the metro.
  • You can get anything you want at this place Really crowded and chaotic, there are better markets for tourists
  • Fantastic supply. It's a real attraction

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
