Markets in Mexico revolve around food, family, and community, making them special places to visit. Whether you are looking for souvenirs, clay pots, really fresh fruit and vegetables, tacos for the evening meal, or beautifully crafted paintings, silverware, or china, you will be sure to find everything you need.

Though big box stores from the US have popped up all over Mexico, the draw of the bustling little local markets remains strong.

Each market has its own character, centered around the small town or neighborhood in the city where it is located.  Mexico City's largest traditional food market, Mercado de la Merced, is full of little blocks devoted to groups of sellers with similar wares. You can wander the districts devoted to everything from nopales, sometimes stacked five feet high, to pyramids of limes and columns of banana leaves. Tacos, tortillas, chicharrón - all have their representative sections. If you are feeling really adventurous, you can sample the maguey worms or the ant eggs.

This little coastal market on the church square is centered around the fresh produce grown in the fields nearby, and we're sure that just by turning the corner, you would also find a wonderful selection of mariscos from the small fishing boat in the distance.
 
The perfect gift for wooden jigsaw puzzlers and fans of Mexico, this traditional adult wooden jigsaw puzzle can be done time and again. Our wooden jigsaw puzzle artists have included many shaped whimsy wooden jigsaw puzzle pieces that match the theme of the image, and we have integrated them in ways that will delight and surprise you as you put the wooden jigsaw puzzle together.
