“Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food.”
Mercado Ignacio Ramirez
This central covered market sells fresh-from-the-farm produce, eggs, cheese and flowers plus juicers, tortilla presses, medicinal herbs, more more more. Fresh juice bars – and rows and rows of fresh flowers (you will not believe the absolute armful that $10 will buy). Great daily market if you miss Tuesday or Saturday.
Tianguis de los Martes (Tuesday Market)
All day Tuesday, a huge fairgrounds market with produce, meat, flowers, toys, CDs, movies, clothes, taco stands — everything you could possibly imagine. You could spend all day here, at the very least plan on wandering for a few hours and including lunch at one of the taco tables. It can be hard to get a cab back, but it’s worth it. Lots of nice flowers here too.
Saturday Tiangius Organico
Organic coffee and veggies, artisan made breads & cheeses, soaps and skin care products – music and children’s activities too! Lots of food booths too – have a look around before you decide what to have for breakfast or lunch – or you could pick up some bread and cheese and have a picnic in the park. Open 9 – 2 on Saturdays.
