About Mercado Melchor Ocampo, El Carmen

One of the best ways to fully experience the Poblana experience is eating one of the famous cemitas in a typical place like this market, located in the neighborhood of El Carmen. It opened its doors in the fifties and in it you will find among other things: flowers, mole, chiles en nogada when it is season and typical sweets, but it is the traditional prepared cemites that you should not miss. The most famous place is "Las Poblanitas", which you will clearly identify by the huge line; there are chicken, milanesa, sausage, leg or ham.
