Flower of Xochimilco

Take 2 hours


Buying flowers and plants is one of the most deeply rooted traditions in Mexico City, that is why there are so many flower markets, and flowers are omnipresent in all types of markets, in flea markets and with street vendors.

The wonderful thing about visiting a flower market is that we crave everything we see. Plants make us feel good, flowers surround us with beauty. In Xochimilco you will find the largest flower markets of the city, where they also sell ornamental plants and everything you need for gardening. If you're going to spend the day, you can not leave without buying flowers.

You have several options. Before you arrive at the Cuemanco pier, there is the Cuemanco Plants Market, the largest in Latin America, where you'll find all kinds of trees and ornamentals. Next to the Bosque de Nativitas is the Mercado Madre Selva, very traditional with flowers and plants that are difficult to find. While in the center of Xochimilco there is the Palacio de la Flor, also very traditional, and in Tlaxialtemalco you will find the Acuexcomátl plant and flower Market.

At Christmas you will see whole fields planted with Nativitas.

If you're buying, arrive early in the morning. The best day is Saturday.

Wear comfortable shoes to walk round these huge markets.

Compare prices before you buy.

Combine a visit to the market of flowers and plants with a day of fun on the trajineras.
