This is a very large market with two floors inside which also spills over the adjacent streets and alleys. There are hundreds shops which sell everything, from vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, clothing, shoes, medicinal herbs, furniture, etc. There are a few touristic shops selling t-shirts and the usual trinkets. Inside there are also many little restaurants selling all kind of... 更多
The Mercado isn't only huge. It spills onto the street, and it's surrounded by businesses lining the street around it. If you're looking for luxury, try the area around Teatro Juarez. Otherwise, come here!

I always eat here for lunch at the restaurants in the center of the Mercado. Cócteles de camarón, sopa de mariscos, o un sandwich de cerdo...all better than average and served in a very nice market atmosphere. Just find a busy stall and pull up a seat.
The Hidalgo Market is worth going to just for the experience of the busyness of it and also for the history of the building. Lots of food stalls on the first level but in terms of the merchandise stalls on the 2nd level it all mostly very touristy mass produced knick knack stuff.

On the ground floor you will find a huge selection of local "eateries" dishing out truly local food to the local crowd. At the back of the building (to the left of the stairs, you will find the top... 更多
The ground level floor has lots of food/fruit/vegetable stalls and lots of places to eat. I'd recommend that you try the tortas at Carnitas Sams (pork meat with salt white bun). The second floor of the market is a great place for you to buy all types of souvenirs and traditional candies from the Guanajuato area.
A little off the beaten path for foreign tourists, it is a very typical indoor Mexican market featuring food, groceries, sweets, and toys.. Not full of tourist trinkets or the usual goods sold to tourists. It's a good place to visit to get a feeling for how Mexicans shop and eat when they don't go to a supermarket or modern... 更多
