Browse through the lively stalls of Mexico City's top street markets during this 5-hour cultural tour (with snacks!). Whether you're looking for a magic love potion, voodoo dolls, hot tamales, pretty piñatas, or exotic flowers, you're sure to find it at one of the five markets you'll visit over the course of this adventure. Sample tasty street food along the way and get plenty of attention from your guide — group size is limited to 12 for a personal experience.
At 8:45am, meet your guide and your small group of 12 or fewer at the Museo Mexicano del Diseño in Mexico City. Set off for an insider's look at some of the Mexican capital's best markets just like a local, by taking a ride on the subway. Your first stop is a market some locals might not even know. Hear about the market’s unique history from the early 20th century, its connection to Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and its context within modern Mexican society. Hop back on public transport and visit the bizarre witchcraft market, where you can purchase a superhero costume, a festive piñata, a voodoo doll, a hangover remedy, or any number of magic potions.Walk a few blocks to a "3-in-1" market that features flowers, prepared food, and fresh produce. This is Mexico City's biggest flower market, where local vendors will sell you exotic flowers that exactly match the color of your eyes. As you wander through the market, sample a cup of pineapple tepache, tamales, Mexican barbecue, fruit cocktail, and exotic mixed juices.Your last stop is at a local patio for more food samples, ensuring you finish the 5-hour tour with a panza llena, corazon contento — a “full tummy and happy heart.” The tour concludes around 1pm, back at the Museo Mexicano del Diseño.
