Sonora Market

Magic and games, spells and stuffed animals, stuffed snakes and costumes. You only find this strange combination of merchandise wandering around the Sonora market. It will surprise you! The market is famous for its section of toys, party supplies and costumes, and at any time of the year there is a continuous coming and going of people choosing masks, ornaments, dolls and games of all kinds. But Sonora is particularly popular with the curious for its mysterious section dedicated to magic. If you walk through the narrow corridors you will find medicinal herbs for any disease, along with amulets, candles, lotions and Santeria articles. And it is that in Mexico traditional medicine is still alive, the same one that shamans and healers used, halfway between herbalism and the magical universe. If you want to conquer your loved one, attract good luck or money, avoid evils that threaten you or drive away certain people, here you will find your spell. If you suspect that they gave you the evil eye, they will give you a clean here. If you want to know your future, here they will read your hands. Because if there is a place in Mexico City dedicated to magic, it is the Sonora market. The market reflects the calendar of celebrations. During the month before Día de Muertos, the market fills with skulls and Halloween costumes. At Easter you will find the cardboard “Judas” that will be burned according to tradition. There is an animal section that we recommend that you avoid. They won't allow you to take photos there. The fish supply center used to be here and outside you will still find traditional stalls with fish and seafood dishes. As in any crowded place, keep a close eye on your belongings. Schedule: Monday to Sunday from 09: 00-19: 00 Location: Av. Fray Servando Teresa de Mier # 419, Col. Merced Balbuena. 15800
