Only trading on Saturdays, the Mercado Sullivan (Sullivan Market) is a roaming tianguis that sets up home on Avenida Sullivan from roughly 9am onwards. At this outdoor street market, you’ll find the quintessential Mexico City snack, the humble pambazo, alongside all the classic antojitos such as barbacoa, tacos and quesadillas. Take some time to explore the stalls before you plump for the puesto you want to eat at.
If you want a more adventurous (or unique) Mexico City street food experience, there’s no better place to venture than Mercado de San Juan which is known for serving up a ton of creepy crawlies and edible insects. You can also find plenty of international products there too, such as less widely available Asian greens and plenty of exotic meats that you would never imagine to be offered in Mexico (think crocodile and armadillo).
Easily one of Mexico City’s best indoor markets is the centrally-located Mercado Medellín, named after the Colombian city and, as you may imagine, a great spot to head if you want a more international flavor in your street food snacks. In fact, it’s well known for its Cuban ice cream vendors. However, you can still find some classic street food offerings at the Calle Coahuila entrance and a well-known seafood stall called La Morenita.
