Mercado Los Globos

Ensenada's Biggest Food & Flea Market
Mercado Los Globos (or "Tiangui Los Globos," using the Spanish word for flea market) is a large, partially enclosed food and flea market on the east side of Ensenada, Mexico. While downtown Ensenada is a popular tourist destination and cruise ship port with English-speaking tourists everywhere, this Ensenada market zone feels a world away.

The market is divided into two sections. The first is a series of buildings and enclosed passageways where vendors sell fresh produce, meat, fish, and prepared foods seven days a week. The second is a series of temporary tent stalls set up on the street to sell new and second-hand merchandise like rugs, clothing, hardware, and even small pets (cages with birds, hamsters, and a few fish tanks). On weekends, these streets are closed to automobiles.

My favorite experiences were visiting Cremería Los Globos (a rustic, artisan cheese shop), watching a small tortilla baker produce fresh flour tortillas, and getting a 75 cent scoop of homemade lime sorbet ("nieve de garrafa").

This market is a great way to experience local Baja California food culture and it shouldn’t be missed if you visit Ensenada.
