Anillo de Circunvalación between, General Anaya and Adolfo Gurrión, Mexico City, , Mexico

Three dozen kinds of dried chiles and mole pastes? Pungent Oaxacan cheese, stacks of nopals, and the mingled scents of guavas and epazote? It's all here at the gigantic Merced, which spans several city blocks and has more than 3,000 vendors from across Mexico.

Best Bites Abraham (#24) trades in delicious huaraches (griddled masa cakes) with toppings such as chorizo and carne asada. Migas Arnulfo (171 Mercado de Comidas) is wildly popular for its sopa de migas, a restorative bread soup.
