food & drink, Mexico, Oaxaca, Puerto Escondido


I was reluctant to go to the Mercado in Puerto Escondido on a Saturday as I imagined it would be something like a suburban Ikea. I could not have been more wrong. It buzzes, and everything is super fresh.

There are aisles and aisles of goodness: taco stands, juice stands, all different types of meat, dried fish, flowers, clothes. I could stay there for days.

This little haul of flowers, avocados, bananas, tomatoes and limes set me back $5. If that.
