San Juan de Dios Market#5 in Best Things To Do in Guadalajara
Price & Hours
Tapatíos (Guadalajara natives) like to say that their San Juan de Dios Market – also called Mercado Libertad – is the world's largest indoor market, but whether that's true or not, the Mercado's modern building is filled with traditional treasures that are worth a perusal. Handfuls of stalls hawk everything from Paracho guitars to leather goods to scrumptious foods like gorditas and candy.
Many visitors said this sprawling market is like a maze, adding that it's easy to get overwhelmed and even lost in its overflowing stalls. For many, it wasn't the market's goods that drew them to visit; it was the building itself. Many described the market's interior and the promenades surrounding it as visually arresting, while others cited this attraction as the best place to find affordable local food. For some of the market's best eats, travelers suggest visiting the stalls with the longest lines, which tend to be the most popular with locals.
You'll find this free market located just a 10-minute walk east of the city's cathedral.
