While visiting the Roma Norte neighborhood one morning in Mexico City, we stopped by Mercado Roma, a gourmet food hall that appeared on list after list of places to visit in the city. Roma Norte was worth a visit in its own right. It’s a bohemian, artsy pocket of the city famous for hipsters, coffee shops, and restaurants.
Mercado Roma is a two-story gourmet food market specializing in fresh, organic foods. The first floor is peppered with small stalls selling everything from sushi burritos to global spice blends. The second story is a rooftop Biergarten. It’s rumored that the food hall’s design was inspired by the Chelsea Market in Manhattan.
They’ve done a nice job in the small space. We shared some churros and a juice while we waited for the sightseeing bus to arrive (it conveniently picked us up right out front).
