I hesitate to recommend tourists going to this area because of its well-publicized reputation (on the Tepito side). Travel literature and the history of the neighbourhood states that you are taking a risk by coming here, especially if you look like a gringo. Having said that, I had to go after I saw Tepito featured by Anthony Bourdain in “Parts... More

This was a great experience! It is a huge market and there are so many things to see. Not just the usual stalls but a good variety of antiques, stalls where you can have your hair or nails done or body hair waxed or piercings done. We ate at a stall serving ribs and Jamaica water.

It is, in my opinion a very delicious sweet/sour, very juicy fruit. The market was very much like any other one, but... More

I have been here several times looking for cheap CDs (which were not hard to locate). The last time I walked here from the center with my elderly mother who was instructed NOT to open her mouth as she only speaks English and to keep her personal belongings directly in front of her. We went on a weekday in the... More
