Isn’t this little girl precious with those rosy cheeks? She was so sweet and helpful trying to answer my questions about tomatillos, cactus, and yucca roots.
Many items at this market were jarred like tomato relishes and peaches. Corn grinders lined the tops of stalls to make the popular and delicious tortillas.
Fresh baked tortillas with grilled vegetables and slow cooked beef and pork were being sold in delicious looking soft tacos. People were lingering around these stalls ordering their food and generally relaxing with one other. The weather was beautiful and it felt like a perfect Spring day.
I decided to get in line with the locals and indulge in one of those soft tacos. Somehow, I didn’t seem to blend because there were quite a few stares coming my way. This little guy was so cute. He watched my every move so I’m sure it was evident that I wasn’t a “local”.
Prickly pears and bulging sacks of cinnamon certainly caught my attention. I’ll be googling how to cook Mexican dishes with these items when I get home.
