This clean market is full of stalls to buy everything plus food, seafood, and meats. You can also but your souvenirs here. It is a very clean and well organized. I had several tasty and inexpensive meals here.

Really enjoyed the cheap comida corrida that was served in the various locales in this market. It may not be super fancy but if what you are looking for is something cheap, local and pretty quick, you will find it here.

Certainly worth a visit and do try some of the delicious food stalls. We had pulled pork on delicious bread and tried some of the exotic fruits we never have in the States.

The entrance of the Mercado Hidalgo is impressive - a high arch of pink sandstone. Pass though and you find an arched metal roof, very high to permit some air flow. There are many different types of stalls selling cooking ingredients, fresh fruit and vegetables...More
