This is a local market at it’s finest. I would not consider it touristy at all. If you’re looking for some local meat, as in raw freshly killed animals then this is your place. Lots of interesting dead insects to choose from too if that’s your thing. Me? No thanks. Some are covered in chocolate others are plain. There’s lots of fruit choices and actually lots of food vendors inside so if you’re looking for some authentic local meals this might be your place. It is a bit smelly and rough around the edges so be warned.

There are two sides to the market, the artisinal crafts side and the food market. The crafts had moved outdoors while they were refurbishing the indoor market. We visited the food side and Oh my! Is it because we were on vacation? The fruit we bought was exceptional. The vendor was very happy to give us samples of his fruit. The oranges and papayas we heavenly. He also gave us samples of fruit we have never tasted before like cherimoya "knobby" on the outside but the white flesh inside is so sweet and juicy. I have heard of Guavas but had never tasted a fresh one. Oh so good! The market is a bee hive of activity with butchers, fish mongers, spice sellers and places to get an adult beverage and eat. No Spanish? No problem, just point smile and taste! Gracas!

Local market with lots to see and have. Fresh fruit, vegetables and meats. Lots of this to grab and go , like coffee, sandwiches, fresh juices and more. You can buy many itmes for home. You can see strange things to eat like scorpions and insects. Good to visit while nearby.

A unique place, for sure. Every meat and fish you can imagine, "up close and personal". If you're queasy about blood or raw meat, this is not your place. If I lived in CDMX, I would go to this market to get fresh fish and meat at great prices. More locals than tourists, which I liked. Loved the variety of insects! Fun and very different----just down the street from Cuidadela, a fun arts and crafts shopping place.

The market has an assortment of fruits and vegetables which you can expect in most markets. Notable to this market are the various types of cheese and exotic meats which include ostrich, crocodile and various types of insects etc. In the back of the market they have the skinned animals so this might not be the best place for squeamish folks. They have small food stalls/dinners so you can enjoy a various types of food and beautiful piñatas on the ceiling.
