Mercado San Juan de Aragón IV & V

The Mercado San Juan de Aragón (secc IV & V) is the big public market for two sections of the San Juan de Aragón neighborhood. It’s located just south of the Bosque de Aragón Metro station. That made it part of our preferred Picnic Places list because one can pick up everything one needs for a picnic in the park, and head back.

A 2017 UAM study counted some 232 vendors within the market proper. That makes it a medium-sized market for Gustavo A. Madero, but it’s surely one that’s adequate for most people’s picnicking needs. Inside, you can also chow down on plenty that’s prepared here every day. Like most markets, this one does steady trade in sit-down meals, comida corrida, and the mainstays of Mexican fare.

Clever pedestrians can make it from the Metro south to the market in some 15 minutes. The park, as is obvious from the platform of the Metro, is in the opposite direction. But it’s actually quite close.

This market serves a giant area to the south of the Bosque. All of these great, and densely populated, neighborhoods came to be since the early 1970s. They’ve grown in importance to the culture and feeling of Mexico City. With their centrally located market, for residents of the area, they’re simply home.
