Nothing like a real Mexican Mercado to show lots of interesting things. One just has to immerse themselves in the market, and look at all of the fine details of what is for sale. If you are expecting an American super market, forget it, you...More

This is an experience for all your senses - sights, sounds, smells, taste and touch!! It is mad and chaotic with no maps or ways to guide yourself around but you will find your way out eventually. There are sections for meat, fish and fruit...More

Geared to everyday shopping needs; meats, vegetables, clothing (limited), jewelry, etc. Bargain prices. With booths located in close proximity to each other, it is easy to overlook parts of the Market. Visit early, it gets crowded fast.
