In the summer of 2018, I visited this incredible public market in the northeast side of the zocalo (main plaza) of Mexico City’s central historic district. While this market sells traditional goods, it is a little bit different because it quite progressive, even post-revolutionary, it is described, as it has areas for day care, auditorium, I think even a garden, and art … square meters and meters of murals on the walls and ceiling.
These murals were painted in the style of Diego Rivera under his supervision and mostly reflect socialist ideas such as justice for workers, famers and miners and the fight against racism and Nazism.
The market was built in 1934 and is undergoing restoration especially the paintings that have faded with time.
The colors in real time are a little muted than shown in the pictures.
