Scenes from a Mexican market

Colors. Smells. Sounds. They’re all different in the Mexican market. Be grateful, peeps, I didn’t take pictures of the meat stalls. Here are some photos from the markets…wherever we go in Mexico, we always go to the local markets. They are places where we’re immediately introduced to everything local and give us a sense of place.

This fruit vendor stopped announcing his frutas when I took his photo. He was fun, loud and a chatterbox.

So beauteous and colorful. I love outdoor markets.

I especially like those ball-of-string looking lanterns. Very pretty and cheerful.
