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.
