Once we told our taxi driver were we going to this market, he laughed. Then he told us it was dangerous, then he laughed some more! This was a little ominous. We were dropped off a few blocks before the market as the traffic was...More

This market is absolutely massive! It's also very confusing; if you're looking for something specific, you'd better figure out how to ask for it in Spanish. The vendors were very nice, and offered us free samples of cheese, etc. From one vendor I wanted to...More

Where do I even begin, this place is massive and oh so crowded, we went on a Friday, bad move. Lots of stalls selling the same things but I was happy to see some wood work and housewares, you can definitely find some good stuff...More

If you are in Mexico City around February 2nd (Candelaria Day in the Catholic calendar) I would strongly recommend that you visit the Talavera street near the popular Merced market. In those days all traditional families in Mexico celebrate this festivity by getting together and...More
