On Film | The Vibrant Cayoacán Market, Mexico City


When traveling, I find there’s no better way to feel immersed in a culture than to head to the local market. When I visited Frida Khalo’s and Diego Riviera’s hood, Cayoacàn, I had no choice but to go visit this market which definitely is an icon of the neighbourhood.  Cayoacàn market has a unique energy and THE BEST tostadas I ever had. I loved the folklore influence to it,  the colours and that in addition to finding every Mexican market basics, you can shop for funky costumes, Mexican witchcraft items, toys, plants and even birds.  

This vibrant, authentic and charming place was definitely an highlight of my trip.
