This large market near the Alondiga used to be a traditional food market selling meats and cheeses. Over time tourist trinkets have been added so now it has an interesting mix of items for sale.

you'll be on overdrive after half a hour wandering this huge 2 story building. Great craft shops, colors, it has everything you've seen in the city. And places to eat, or just watch them from the second story balcony. A short walk from anywhere.

Food was terrible. Crafts were average. Not as nice and clean as one would expect. The environment is not enjoyable.

As Guanajuato has become more and more touristy, the market has become increasingly less interesting. Lots of trashy trinkets. You won't miss much if you don't go.

My wife and I visited Mercado Hidalgo just after breakfast. We purchased many items at this location because it was a nice, relaxed environment, compared to the hustle and bustle of the streets. We weren’t bombarded with people trying to sell us their wares every...More

Incredible building not far from city center. Entrance and the tower with the clocks are a must to see. If you go inside you will find plenty of food. If you like to explore good place to go.
