Nicely done market with lots of food stalls, produce, and meat/fish/poultry. We enjoyed (very inexpensive) food with locals. Not a place to go for high end clothing or other things, but a variety of gift items. And, fun people watching, including outside the building.

this is a large market that covers 2 entire floors with just about anything you can imagine. There must have been over a hundred booths. It was very central in location and easily accessed

This is a fantastic market. To get the true old city vibe you must visit. A walk through the market is like a walk back in time. The merchants are friendly and are happy to see you. Dr. Rico Canada

If you want to get in touch with popular culture and traditions this is a must go. You’ll see from vegetable stands to traditional clothing and souvenir stands. You can also eat a traditional meal.

This bi-level mercado is visually striking unlike the usual warrens of Mexican markets where you can't see much past your own nose. It also has an architectural feel of days gone by which is very appealing. As a locale it is great, as a place...More

If you like Mexican food it starts in a main market like the Hidalgo Market. If you haven't taken the time to visit an authentic market, this is a good one. The structure is interesting and in general, it is one of the more predominant...More
