A Trip to the Market

Merida Mexico two women food vendors cooking

The downtown market in Merida is huge.  You can buy anything and everything, get stuff repaired, have breakfast, get a tattoo, and wander around getting lost for hours.  It's both interesting and completely overwhelming, particularly on Saturday morning when it seems like half of Merida's population is shopping, visiting, and hanging out. But it's an experience not to be missed and we wanted to share it with you.
