This classic Mexican market has it all: housewares, craft supplies, produce, meat and fish, pastes for making mole, and one of the best flower selections in the city. In true Mexican mercado tradition, most of the vendors will gift you freebies upon purchase: a piece of fruit, a rose, or a slice of cheese. I usually start my visit in the housewares section, which has great, traditional stuff: brightly striped kitchen towels, enamel cookware, citrus juicers, and more. After stuffing my tote bag with ripe mangoes, fresh fava beans, local mushrooms, and bunches of palm leaves, I stop by the candy section for a handful of chili-pineapple gummies.
