Mexico City Markets and Food Tour
From US$39.00
Overview
Hit five different Mexico City street markets in just one tour. See the range of delicious food, household goods and oddities sold in Mexico’s bustling markets, from pinatas to “love potions,” exotic flowers to tamales. These big city bazaars can be overwhelming, but with a guide, you can shop for offbeat souvenirs and sample Mexico City’s famous market fare without worrying about getting lost.
What to Expect
Make your way to Mexico City’s design museum, the Museo Mexicano del Diseno, where you’ll meet your guide and small group. Travel by subway, stopping first at one of the city’s lesser-known markets, where you’ll learn about its ties to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, two of the country’s most celebrated artists, and its role in Mexican culture.

Next, head to the witchcraft market, where potions, remedies, and voodoo dolls get sold alongside party pinatas and costumes. From there, walk to the massive flower market, a 3-in-1 bazaar selling fresh produce, prepared food, and beautiful, exotic flowers.

Satisfy your midday hunger with fresh blended fruit juices, Mexican-style barbecue and steaming tamales. Pace yourself, as your final market stop offers even more food options. You’ll finish the tour back at the design museum.

Great Guide

We had a fantastic day seeing the markets of MXCD, we took the bus and subway, guided by Evelyn, she was very knowledgeable and nice. We ate foods that only locals would know to order. Markets were very clean and extremely colorful.

It's about 3 1/2 hours plus getting to and from the meet up point. Wear comfortable sturdy shoes, like sneakers or hiking boots. You'll be walking the whole time on uneven ground through warehouse like environments.
