Mercado Hidalgo was very disappointing- it was all junk and fast food. However, the second floor and the attached outdoor market had some decent souvenirs.

Very colorful folkloric mercado, lots of traditional Mexican artisan toys, and other crafts, some junk made in china, too. Compare prices before buying anything,they can vary a lot from one vendor to another. I would not purchase any food (or candy).
