Description:

Sonora Market is a feat for the senses and an undertaking suitable for those seeking an alternative, quirky side to Mexico. Built in the early 50s, the Mercado Sonora quickly became house to many healers, shamans and spiritual people mixing traditional medicine and magic with Catholic symbolism. The result is a massive market that mixes the regular Mercado produce (fruits, vegetables, flowers, meats, etc) with an impressive array of spiritual paraphernalia such as herbs for good luck, rituals to scare off any evil spirits, statuettes, card readers, snakes, etc. This massive market in the heart of Mexico City can be a cultural shock so try to blend in and approach with an open mind.
