Coyoacán Market

The Coyoacán Market is one of the most popular places to stop in Coyoacán. The photo above shows the many toppings that can be put on the tostadas, arguably the best selling item for lunch in the place. But go for the atmosphere, take in the artisan items, and just the cobblestone streets that will take you there are usually enough to charm even jaded travelers.

Walking distance from both the Frida Kahlo or Leon Trotsky museums, it’s a colorful and terrific place to eat. Folks end up at the Coyoacán market after a trip to one of the museums, and on weekends when the Coyoacán center is full of strolling people and their guests.

Even if you don’t go in for the mariscos (seafood), there’s always plenty more that can be piled onto a tostada. Mushrooms, tinga, pata (beef or pork shanks) or even pure vegetables will all stack up and still hold some salsa. Follow up by strolling up and down the aisles of independent vendors. One can’t help but be charmed by everything on offer, from skulls and skeletons, to needlework and plenty of artisan works.
