Chiconcuac is a small colonial town on the motorway to Texcoco. Itâ€™s pretty enough to wander around, especially if you have your own transport and time before/after visiting Teotihuacan. If you do decide to pop by, make sure itâ€™s on a Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday; market days. Chiconcuac's tianguis or public market, is famous all around the country for its locally produced wool products and huge food court, which is renowned as THE place to come for barbacoa de Borrego, mutton barbecue. About 2,400 permanent vendors and up to 600 more on the weekend transform the normally sleepy town into a hive of buying, selling and munching.
General market, Food market
To get here on public transport, take Metro Line A to La Paz and hop on a combi on Platform A. Otherwise take a Texcoco-bound bus from Mexico Cityâ€™s TAPO station ($2.50).
