Mercado Guadalupe del Moral

Open - Limited Services / Capacity

The Mercado Guadalupe del Moral is the neighborhood market for the colonia of the same name. Now some 70 years old, in ancient Iztapalapa it’s still considered a “new” neighborhood. The market is just down the street from the Church of Santa María de Guadalupe del Moral. The building dates from 1962.

The market, just east of the giant Centro de Abastos, is a more user-friendly version of the same thing. A 2017 UAM study counted some 119 vendors here. It’s a distribution center that keeps all the local eateries in business. That’s in addition to the hundreds of local families. But importantly, many of those local eateries are under the same roof.

That means you can eat the freshest possible food here, ready prepared. Beyond those stand up puestos in the surrounding streets, inside you’ll find plenty offering sit-down service. Recipes are traditional. Service is exceptional. And it’s actually better than stand-up tacos and antojitos.

There’s a quick primer on comida corrida and the menu del día here. It’s a great way to eat while learning something of the local community. You’re paying less and supporting local small businesses.

The Mercado Guadalupe del Moral is one of some 69 public markets in Iztapalapa. Each of them is unique. All of them offer something good to eat and an unequaled glimpse into the life of Mexico City.

Hours: Daily 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
