  • At the market you can eat and buy a variety of exotic dishes from meat and poultry, as well as fruit. and you can buy it all back home. I tried an iguana. a delicious reptile turned out to be. But the sauce was specific. We wanted to buy lion meat. But it cost $25 U.S. dollars per 100 grams. And where is the evidence that we will buy the lion meat for this money??? Who, and Mexicans should not believe.

  • A rule of travel I hold close to myself is visiting local markets. Seeing what raw food is sold to locals allows you to understand the culture of an area better than anything else. Mercado de San Juan...  more »

  • El Mercado de San Juan is the ultimate Mexican experience. This is an exotic place even for local standards. On the one hand this is a very good place to find good quality fruits and veggies as well as meat and sea food. On the other is bizarre place where you'll find odd things such as lion's meat. There is a couple of good tapas restaurants and a Peruvian one
  • Good food at affordable prices. Great variety of fresh produce, cheese and wine. The place is kind of run down and the surrounding area definitely needs some improvement. But the are some improvements going on already. Come here with enough cash since no cards accepted. Very close to Alameda park so you can enjoy walking after lunch.
