The Sonora Market (Mercado de Sonora) is Mexico City’s witchcraft market and the place to go for traditional and more obscure potions and remedies. At the Sonora witchcraft market you will find some of the more obscure and traditional remedies that claim to help everything from return of a lost lover, a cure for dandruff, or clear skin. Mexico’s underlying pre-Hispanic and Afro-Cuban witchcraft roots are evident at the Sonora Market (Mercado de Sonora), located on Avenida Fray Servando Teresa in the Venustiano Carranza borough.
Beliefs vary between traditional and modern brujos (witch). Traditional brujos hold core beliefs that are similar to or identical to the witchery around the world. Modern brujos are diverse and can resemble faith healers, be shamanic, spiritualists, or pagan.
Practices are greatly diverse and are dependent upon the locale and the form of brujería. Ancient forms tend to reflect the religions of the indigenous cultures, whilst modern forms tend to be syncretic and use the current dominant religion (usually Catholic).
