Mercado Villa Comidas

The Mercado Villa Comidas is one of very few markets in Mexico City dedicated almost exclusively to serving prepared food. It’s visible from just outside the nearby Mercado Villa Zona 34 and even serves lunch to some of the workers from the other market. The older Mercado Hidalgo is also just a stone’s throw away.

Of course, the mainstay of the market is in serving the daily visitors to the Basilica de Guadalupe. The market is also plainly visible from the Plaza Mariana and from the front of the local government complex at the Gustavo A Madero esplanade. And so, some local office workers will also make regular stops at around lunchtime.

Like nearly all of the markets in the area, if not in all of Mexico City, this one resulted from an attempt to provide more vendors with selling space off the busy streets. So you will find some merchants offering wares that aren’t ready-to-eat foods. And some of these will spill out onto the plaza out front. It’s a pleasant space that borders on the giant Panteón Guadalupe Hidalgo to the immediate east.

But by and large, the Mercado Villa Comidas is the local lunch market.  While it’s great for fast foods, antojitos, and the regular fried fare, there are also a number of smaller comida corridas dealing in healthy prepared meals. There’s also a seafood place, several small delis, and likely everything one could need at lunchtime in or around the Villa.

Hours: Weekdays, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Weekends, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
