is there a mercado near the zocalo?

I would be looking for the typical Mexican mercado that sells food and everything else, not just arts and crafts - is there one in the historic center? Thanks!

You might try the Mercado Melchor Ocampo in the El Carmen area.


It's probably about 10 blocks from the Zocalo.

If you want to enjoy traditional, good and delicious pueblan tasty food, go to the Mercado de Sabores Poblanos in Avenida 4 poniente and call3 13 norte right across the mercado Venustiano Carranza. The market “Los Sabores Poblanos“main objective is to promote, to be known and to the development of poblano cuisine. The property consists of 130 locales with traditional food, candy and crafts, as well as fourteen national franchises who offer a wide variety of foods ranging from molotes and cemitas to dishes such as the famous mole poblano and seafood.

I would personally recommend you to go to fonda "Chave" she always has chiles rellenos, albóndigas in chile stew with rice everything she cooks it's delicious and affordable that you won't regret trust me.

A great hotel in Puebla and Oaxaca is Cityexpress or Cityjunior, they are new hotels, very clean, with LCD TV and cable, Wifi that really works in the rooms, and very kind staff who will make your stay a great experience, rooms available are habitación sencilla (single room with queen size bed) from $85.00 to $120.00 USD and you get a great continental breakfast (Coffee, pastries, fresh melón and papaya slices, milk, orange juice, ham slices, lettuce and bread). Great hotels for your money trust me I stayed there and they recently new buildings. Domicilio
