I have mentioned before that the best place to buy food in Mexico is your local tianguis (street market) and mercado (market). I’m very lucky that my neighborhood has one of each. I’ve written about Mercado San Cosme, my local market, where I do most of my shopping. However, there’s also a great tianguis where I just recently started shopping for produce. This tianguis sets up very early every Sunday morning three blocks from my house along Sullivan Avenue.
In Mexico the most mundane of activities, food shopping for example, can be a great experience and adventure. You just have to open your senses to take in all the colors, sounds, tastes and aromas of a Mexican market. There’s not much more I can say about these markets so I’ll let my pictures tell you the rest of the story.
