How wonderful! And the produce may not look picture perfect, but it tastes heavenly. It must be the soil. For example, I've had wonderful tomatoes on the West Coast and here too (locally grown heirlooms), but the ones I tasted in Mexico were simply exceptional!

Wow, what a selection!
Any places in town to just get a hamburger?

That is a lot of fruits!
Very nice shot Kate.

I could go for one of those watermelons.

The fruit you eat does not get much fresher than this is. Wow. It makes our new Kroger store produce look dismal. Nice photos.

Kate,
I really adore town markets and all the towns that one visits, generally have such a market.
I am sure that I would feel quite at home in yours.
I guess that's just one more language to learn, now !!

Hey my Swedish friend is coming back from Mexico on friday from that area.

Have fun down there!

Kate - this looks quite lush, a refreshing change from winter in most of the US. We have to go into a supermarket to see something like this and it's under harsh artificial light.

Thanks for your comment today. Yes, you're right about the Arch's anatomical symbolism - if you are looking at the narrow side on the north or south. If you look at the wide side on the east and west, it may better represent your half of the species.

Kate, if you have a minute, would you drop by my blog, please? There's update. Thanks! :)

Markets look strange without the hustle and bustle of all the customers!

Dear Kate: You make me wonder. How did you manage to get into the market before it was even opened? I can see the iron courtains still locked down. The place opens to public at 6 o'clock but owners are allowed to enter at 3 A.M. so they are ready at 6. Good job.

everything looks so good and so many choices.

ooooo, so colourful and picturesque, and what could be nicer than a stroll in the open to select fresh food?

It is so funny but if I am not wrong this "Mandujanos" little fruit store the owner is the family of my very first date when I was 13 years old. I am originally from Mazatlan but I moved to USA fifteen years ago.
