Came mostly for the food, but the market itself has some interesting architecture and murals. So many different kinds of food vendors here, feels like you can spend a month here and still not try every stall. It's not touristy at all, as most of the customers seem to be local. Most of the vendors are very accommodating, even if they don't really speak English, and our Spanish is basically non-existent. Great place to see local daily life, and try some amazing food for a few bucks.…

Typical Mexican market recently rebuilt. Huge food offer and brujeria supplies. Ground floor tamales and jugos are worth a visit.

The original Mercado Corona burnt down in 2014, and they have done a good job redoing it. It is very busy, packed with merchants and visitors. Interesting displays, it has some really unique collection of herbal remedies and oils on the 3rd floor.

In my express visit to Guadalajara, I’ve been told not to miss the opportunity to try a Torta Ahogada. A lot of people had recommended me to try one in the Mercado Principal, however it wasn’t what I’ve expected. Probably, it all depends on the places where I had it (I went to more than one place). I found it tasteless. As many friends continue to recommended me this dish I have decided to come back to Guadalajara and give the Torta Ahogada another chance, until then I will not change my point of view. So far, I’d rather stay in Mexico City and eat tacos.…

Like most Mercado’s, there are a variety of shops. Some very good food too. If you like shopping and going through things, this is a great place to do it.
