Everything was going very well until i discovered that they no longer sell this delight of the Huasteca. I was on my way out of the tianguis, when a pulled me by the neck and broke me and stole a gold chain I was wearing. Obviously my mistake wouldn't have taken it away from me before I went, but it's bad that a tianguis so big still get the robberies. The stall owners told me "don't follow it because it can sting you with a knife!", so I lost my chain, and didn't taste the Zacahuil... If you go to this market, take every precaution to avoid an incident like mine or worse even get hurt..... The tianguis itself already lost its charm as they sell mainly cheap and defective "paca" clothes already without the varied offer of good items.

Because it compiles what is the country and the city: surprising and well-kept traditions and antiquities, migration, cultures, subcultures, trends, amazing objects. Obviously, as in any Latin American city THERE IS NO TO GO WITH LOOK THAT YOU HAVE SILVER, I think that applies to any part of the peripheries where there are no elite or gentrified neighborhoods. And the beautiful thing about La Lagunilla is that it is the real CDMX, or that of that past not embellished by privilege but by its popular cultures, by its micheladas, its street food, by the visual offer of flavors and objects that you can find. I left on Metro, it's pretty easy. The first time I tried cocoa and chocolate made naturally, but there you can try amazing vegetarian food, cemitas, Argentine potatoes, Colombian food. And the giant caguamas, the beers, are a MUST. The coolest thing is that you can take them along the way. That's it, about the food. On the other hand, there are all kinds of objects, from trendy makeup and brands (check that, although I bought a Chanel lipstick go to the fixed and better buy from cheaper brands, which do not detract from), second clothes (divine pieces, wonderful) and the best of the market : antiques. Real beauties, books, paintings (both old and new people who are wonderful), hats, accessories. There are people there who sell you old dresses and they are worth what they are worth to be well preserved. I bought a sequin edity bag on my first visit (I still have it) and my biggest acquisition was a vintage black and white sequin jacket. Rather, it is an amazing place for the one who seeks treasures and wants to live new experiences. Even one can get a haircut. I could never make myself amazing trending pieces that they sold there, like glitter boots with transparent heels (on my last day I was going to go there just for that, but I didn't catch up). There are also bracelets made of dissected snakes, ancestral stones. There's everything, for everyone. In an afternoon it is a great experience to tour it.
The best market in Mexico City if you go there on Sunday’s. You will find a huge antique section offering the most beautiful pieces of furniture, collector’s items etc. It is definitely worth a visit! (Just plan to spend some hours there)
I have never seen so many wedding dresses and suits. We went there during the week so didn't see the flee market. But there are a lot of furniture shops. Tons of very fancy dresses. A funny thing is that right next to the fancy dresses and suits they sell costumes, of all kinds and qualities
