The Mercado Gabriel Hernández is one of the highlights of the lively Avenida Centenario in the City’s north. A focal point for the original town of Santiago Atzacoalco, it’s a fantastic place for lunch, or just to learn about the area. In fact, as the original town of Gustavo A. Madero go, this is one of the highlights.
A half-hour walk from Metro Martín Carrera, a bus or taxi will cut that to less than ten minutes. But probably most interesting of all, the Mercado Gabriel Hernández is just across the street from the giant Santiago Atzacoalco Temple & Graveyard complex. (You can see the spires in the photo above). It’s worth having a look around.
Eating at the market is always a treat. In this case, you’ve got the center of a very cool old town just across the street. But you also get fresh everything. And prepared food here is cooked with just the same fresh ingredients.
You’re also supporting local and independent small businesses – and farmers too. They’ll be glad to see you. And your stomach will be glad you came.
