This is an authentic Mexican market selling anything you can think of. It is easy to get there with the subway - will take you to the centre of the market. There are hundreds of stalls selling the same thing. The biggest building mainly sell...More

This is not a fancy shopping mall. But it is so authentic - the taste, the sounds, the smell, the people. I was looking for candy and mole sauce to take back home. The person I travelled with had never been to Mexico, and I...More

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 or lingering. But there's not much to see anyway. There's...More

You can't go wrong visiting these shopping areas - lifeblood of DF. Eat, drink, explore, buy gifts and enjoy an hour or so being in the midst of energy and activities that will leave a great impression.

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

Holy moly! This place is NUTS! It's HUGE! And when we went (on a Saturday) it was packed! That being said, it was a really great experience. We enjoyed getting a window into the 'real' way so many people spend their time in the DF....More

If you arrive on Merced Subway station, once the doors open, you will smell that incomparable market aroma, strong as tobbaco. The first thing I do, is hide my cellphone, wallet and watch inside my front pockets, and beware if someone is following me, between...More
