La Central de Abasto: for the sheer size of it

Mexico City’s modern wholesale market, La Central de Abasto (6am-8pm daily; Metro Aculco then minibus signed “Central de Abasto”), is located in the eastern borough of Iztapalapa and is the largest wholesale market in the world. Extending over 328 hectares and home to more than two thousand businesses, this place handles over 30,000 tons of goods daily, all, amazingly, still paid for in cash. The indoor market is arranged by produce, stacked high in pyramids to impress potential buyers. Here you’ll find rows of watermelons, a section dedicated entirely to potatoes, and walls of sugar cane. The outdoor section covers several plots the size of football fields and is home to seasonal produce, plants and flowers.
