The markets to savor Holy Week
This religious season is also related to gastronomy, because - according to Catholic ideas - one must abstain from red meat, which is why the consumption of fish and seafood is very common during Holy Week 2019.
For this reason, national and foreign tourists seek the most popular markets in Mexico City to try varied cuisine and also learn a little about the traditions that give color to our country. Some of those markets are the following.
It is one of the most famous markets in the capital, because within it you can find Colombian, Mexican and Peruvian cuisine, as well as places where they sell typical Argentine products and of course, fruits and vegetables.
In the hallways of this place there are stores that offer typical Colombian products, such as lulo, a fruit similar to passion fruit. For people who like Mexican flavors, there are businesses dedicated to Oaxacan and Yucatecan cuisine.
Finally, those who love to try new things can buy pisco, the typical Peruvian drink. The address of this famous place is Campeche #101, Roma Sur neighborhood, in the Cuauhtémoc mayor's office.
If there is a market considered one of the most traditional to visit during Holy Week 2019, it is, without a doubt, that of Coyoacán, because in its halls the colors of fruits, vegetables and crafts are mixed.
It is a great option for people who stay in Mexico City and are looking for gastronomic variety, since its different stores sell Mexican snacks that especially surprise the palates of foreigners.
Afterwards, it is a good idea to go out to the Coyoacán ice cream shops to cool off with ice creams of various flavors. The market is located on Ignacio Allende s/n street, Colonia Del Carmen, Coyoacán mayor's office.
