The Mercado San Bartolo is one of the most reliable and colorful markets in the north of the city, and certainly in Lindavista. San Bartolo Atepehuacan is, in fact, one of the original settlements of Gustavo A. Madero.

While many visit the area just for the shopping malls, this one is on a whole different level of excellence. The photographer quoted above even has an online gallery dedicated just to the market. It’s that good.

Like all good markets in the city, this one is surrounded by vendors coming and going. But inside you’ll find plenty of good things to eat. It’s also much more nutritious than what you’ll find in any of the other Lindavista shopping malls.

If you haven’t eaten at a fonda or comida corrida inside one of the city’s public markets, Mercado de San Bartolo is a good place to start. And if you don’t know what we’re talking about, check out the complete guide to Mexico City’s fondas and eat better on any trip to Mexico City. There’s no better place to eat, we guarantee it.
