Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at the Museo Mexicano del Diseño in Mexico City. Begin your insider tour of the city's best markets the way the locals do: with a ride on the subway.

Your first stop is a market that even some locals don't know about. As you have a look around, learn about the context of this place in Mexican society and its history in the early 20th century. Hear about the market's connection to prominent Mexico City historical figures Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. 

Jump back on public transport and head for the bizarre witchcraft market, where you can purchase an all-natural hangover cure, a traditional piñata, a superhero costume or all manner of voodoo items and magic potions. Continue a few blocks to a market that has 3 parts: flowers, fresh produce and prepared food. Ask one of the vendors in the largest flower market in the city to pick out some flowers that match your eye color. Stroll through the warren of stalls chock full of local products, tasting mixed fruit juices, fruit cocktail, Mexican barbecue, tamales and pineapple tepache as you walk. 

Last stop is a local patio for some more food samples, ensuring you won't end your 5-hour tour hungry.

Our tour guide was Hash and I cannot say enough good things about him and the tour experience. He took us to three different markets and we saw various things that we never would have experienced had we not been with him on the tour! He delighted us in his choices for food samples along the way. He loved our questions and he was so genuine telling us of his background growing up and living in Mexico. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Mexico City.

What we loved about this tour was the rich knowledge of our guide and his flexibility related to what the clients interest were. We especially liked the tour to the flower market and the butcher sections. It was very interesting trying chapulines (grasshopers) in the market.

Eva was a great guide. We went to three different markets, had a morning history tour, ate tamales, tacos, a cricket, horchata, and some other local cuisine. You even go super local and take local transport to your stops! Great experience
