It is perfect for shopping and taking pictures. A mixture of aromas, flavors and colors... a typical mexican market. I found variety of fruits, meats, cheeses, wines, tortillas, and more.. I think at good prices. I loved it.

If you go to Mexico city, visiting the mercados is a must. Mercado de San Juan is more of an upscale mercado, specializing in exotic meats and food. Don't miss the tasting of chapulines and other bugs, they're actually pretty good!

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
