La Lagunilla Market is one of the biggest markets in Mexico which is located at a close distance from downtown. The market is a traditional one and is divided into three sections which cater to clothing, furniture and food. The market devoted to furniture also has a separate section that sells antiques. It generally caters to the low income groups and offers things at a cheap price. This place also has a weekly market called Baratillo, which sells second hand items.
The Central de Abastos in Mexico City, one of the largest wholesale markets in the world, is made up of a series of stalls providing fruit and vegetables to the city and some of the adjoining states. The market caters to smaller businesses, as well as restaurants and hotels. The prices here are rock bottom, and you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables of excellent quality without having to pay the middleman. This is the place to go if you want to buy in bulk for a party, a special meal or even Christmas dinner! Public parking is available, but is quite far away.
If it were all about breaking records then this place would already have beaten the market in Zaragoza hands down and won the title of the largest market in Latin America, thanks to its two kilometers of stalls covering more than 20 blocks in Colonia San Felipe. Here you will find everything from hairbrushes amd clothes to desks and sitting room suites. New and secondhand goods are sold at a fraction of their original prices, which means that whatever your budget, you will find something here. This is a truly impressive flea market. Public parking available nearby.
