What you'll do
In this unusual experience we will explore the largest market in the wolrd, and we will make four stops along the way to try some delicious "antojitos", traditional mexican street food. We will walk through some of the most interesting aisles full of colorful produce, flowers, different kinds of seeds, chillies, spices, groceries, dairy and candies. Also we'll get to see some of the big murals painted by internacional artists through the program "Central de Muros" organized in conjunction with the UN (United Nations). During our walk you will have the opportunity to try some local fruits, tacos al pastor, tacos de carnitas and the best mushrooms or squash blossom quesadilla in Mexico city. Activities in this gigantic market start before dawn, so the earlier the better. Come with me to this party for your senses full of bright colors, intense aromas and exquisite flavors.
I live only four blocks away from La Central de Abastos. I have walked through it and made my shopping there since my mother worked in one of its warehouses more than 25 years ago. Also, I had a little store for several years where I used to sell candies, groseries, party items and some fuits and vegetables and this interesting market was my source of supply. I know the aisles, the charming people who work there and the best places to buy and eat in this huge and fascinating market. Come and let me show you around.
