Tepoztlán's market

Tepoztlán

In the Pueblo Mágico of Tepoztlán, the market sets up on Wednesdays and Sundays. This world of flavors and colors is set up on Isabel la Católica Street, right next to the town square. Its trademark feature are the blue tarpaulins that cover each stall.

Its corridors are the town's handicraft and culinary mecca. If shopping is your thing, take your time to peruse the antique, hand-painted metal irons, clay tableware, petates (handmade floormats), handwoven purses, and embroidered textiles. You might also enjoy the pre-Hispanic musical instruments (mainly rainsticks), essential oils, aromatic candles, and jewelry.

The aromas coming from the fruit and vegetable stalls and the stalls specializing in pre-Hispanic fare will, without a doubt, whet your appetite. You will find itacates -which are similar to gorditas but triangle-shaped and stuffed with a variety of guisos (hot, mildly fatty food)-, natural or cured pulque (an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of the agave plant), cecina de yecapixtla tacos, mole de guajolote (turkey mole), mushroom soup, and tortillas de colorin (colored tortillas); in short, a world of flavors that you can accompany with edible insects.

If you enjoy organic products, plan an outing to the Ameyalli Tlacualli alternative market in the San José neighborhood. This market is a community project that features organic, sustainable, and natural handcrafts but only sets up on Fridays.
