Experience a food tour in Mexico City, whose markets are some of the most vibrant places in the world. Delve into the heart of the city and learn about its unique history and its fascinating food culture.

Your Mexican market food journey begins on the subway, just like the local experience. Your first stop is a relatively unknown market. Your guide provides you with some interesting information about the market's unique history, from the first half of the 1900s, and provides context within modern Mexican society. If you're into the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera story, this is a definite highlight.

After, hop on public transportation to make your way to the witchcraft market, one of the most bizarre places in the city. Here you find everything from your favorite superhero costume and festive piñata to magic potions, voodoo dolls, and the ever-coveted natural cure for a hangover. You're sure to be amazed by the different colors, smells, and sheer variety of things you find in this market.

Once you've found your chosen magic elixir, walk a couple blocks to the subway that takes you to a 3-in-1 market of prepared food, fresh fruits and vegetables, and an unmatched selection of flowers. This is the biggest flower market in the city, where local vendors match the color of your eyes to their most exotic flowers. The aisles of this market are lined with stands selling fruit, herbs, piñatas, meat, fish, corn, mole, and everything in between. As you wander through the market, get a sample cup of pineapple tepache, tamales, Mexican barbecue, fruit cocktail, and exotic mixed juices.

Finally, head to a local patio for the last sample of our journey, finishing this Mexico City market tour with a panza llena, corazon contento (full tummy, happy heart). Let all of the exotic experiences you have seen dance in your head as you take your afternoon siesta back in the comfort of your hotel or prepare for an afternoon of adventure at the Teotihuacan pyramids.
