Mexico City’s markets are some of the most colourful, loud and vibrant places the city has to offer. With lots of souvenirs and food aplenty, they are the ultimate destination for those wishing to experience Mexico City in its daily mix of food, colour and noise. There is no better way to experience such senses than strolling through these markets; sampling tamales and tepache, and learning of the vibrant history this amazing city has to offer from your knowledgeable and entertaining local guide.

We start our tour by visiting one of Mexico City’s most unknown markets, full of history as well as many other Mexican delights. Learn about some historical events that took place where you stand, while browsing the stalls and products that pop up around you. From here we move on to a unique and eccentric ‘witchcraft’ market, with its voodoo dolls and potions surrounded by colourful piñatas and superhero costumes. The atmosphere, intrigue and overall existence of this market has to be experienced to be believed.

Finally we move on to one of the grandest markets in the world, a space home to three different markets so big you will feel completely absorbed. We can stroll the aisles of the food market, sampling all the Mexican delights you have heard of, as well as those you haven’t. Then we barter for fresh fruit and vegetables, experiencing the buzz that the outer farming communities add to the big city. Last but not least is the largest flower market in the city, where you will be immersed in colours and smells you never knew existed. Let the flower sellers match a flower to the colour of your eyes, and leave you with a romantic and personal memory of your great Mexico City market experience.

“Evelyn was fantastic - very knowledgable about the markets, but also very friendly to chat with while we were walking between places. She was also helpful in finding food samples that I could eat due to dietary preferences. It was a great way to spend my first morning in Mexico City. Thank you so much Evelyn, and thank you Urban Adventures for running the tour on a different day.”
