Pick Fresh Fruits at Mercado de Xochimilco

Mercado de Xochimilco
Av. 16 de Septiembre
Mexico City, MX undefined

The floating gardens of Xochimilco in the south of the city are a (rightfully) major tourist attraction. After spending a couple of hours riding a chartered trajinera (the brightly painted boats), make your way to the mercado, which is a lime's throw away from the docks. There are dozens of puestos selling every stripe of fruit and vegetable. Eat from the vendors hawking hot tamales, corn masa-based snacks called antojitos and tacos.
