Mercado de Chuburná

Mercado de Chuburná is located outside the city center in the north of Mérida in the colonia Chuburná de Hidalgo. As is common in many neighborhoods in Mérida, there is also a park nearby (Parque de Chuburná) and a church.

Mercado de Chuburná is a traditional and right busy market (especially on weekends) in a hall where food (fruits, vegetables, fish, meat and others), but also shoes, clothing, or handicrafts are offered. In 2018, the market hall was remodeled and reopened.

You can enjoy typical Mexican dishes such as tacos, tortas, enchiladas, quesadillas and tamales. Regional specialties such as cochinita pibil, panuchos and salbutes are also on offer.

If you're in the area, have a look around. The church (Parroquia Nuestra Señora de la Asunción) is an old monastery from the henequen era. Next to the Chuburná market there are flower stalls, street vendors and also a playground for children.

Food at Mercado de Chuburná

House of yellow cotton

Where does the market name come from? Chuburná means "House of yellow cotton" and comes from the Mayan words Chubul (yellow cotton) and Naah (house).

In the past, there were several corn plantations in the area, which have gradually given way to settlement. The fertile soil and favorable climate offered ideal conditions for the cultivation of maize.
