Mercado Coyoacan


The neighborhood of Coyoacan is a bit hip and trendy, a meeting of classic older Mexico City residences with the nearby Autonomous National University of Mexico (UNAM) whose 300,000 tuition-free (!) scholars support a multitude of bookstores and cafes. Because the University is not in session now, the streets are not so full of students -- the break is why we're here, enjoying the vacation of our friend, a University instructor. But Coyoacan's market is simply a market -- a feast of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, taco stands, and sundries for daily life.


Need a pineapple?


Or a few chiles?


Or perhaps some cheese from Oaxaca?


There's no doubt about the freshness of these fellows...


...waiting for purchase under a proper shrine.


Hungry? Take your choice of fillings at the taco stand.


Are the cares of life getting you down? Stop by the apothecary for an aerosol blessing!
