They say politics entwines with everything and here at the mercado this entanglement of food and politics comes to life in the vestibules and porticoes lining the market.

I've heard about the Murals at the Abelardo L. Rodriguez Market in the heart of Mexico City, but was unable to see them until recently. The beautifully restored murals were well worth the wait. This is a true "hidden gem" that one only reads about because even though the Market is in the heart of the city you will miss... More
