  • "It was inspiring to be around all your knowledge and network of wonderful people that you got together to show us the magic of Michoacán! I can see why you love it so much. Not only is it physically beautiful but the spirit of the people is engaging and contagious. We left feeling so well received and in awe of the talent of Michoacanos, and we felt that we learned so much! ! Everyone at the school was impressed by the dulces [candies] and the artesanías [arts and crafts] we brought back. If it hadn't been for you, we never could have seen and done so much...You are incredible!"...Susana Trilling, Seasons of My Heart, Oaxaca.

Great information you got here. I've been reading about this topic for one week now for my papers in school and thank God I found it here in your post.I had a great time watching and reading this.

Thanks for a good post on a great market. Recently I read that there was a fire in the market. Which stalls were damaged? Are they open now?

When last I visited Mexico City, this market was one of my most extraordinary and happy memories. I can still smell this place as I write this.
I agree with you. Everyone who loves food needs to visit here.

Haven't been there in awhile, have to go back!

Beautiful, beautiful food! Thanks so much for this inspiring post. We'll be there next weekend, and I'll be looking for that book.

Saludos,

Great post! =)

Kind of reminds me of the Barcelona Boqueria market which was one of the great adventures of massive choices of fresh ingredients. Your resting smiling Lechóns sparks my memory of that market.
Will have to make the trek to DF again, one of these days!

I love this market, I wrote about it last year when I found beautiful "porcini" mushrooms with great surprise and also italian rice so I ended up cooking "risotto con porcini" italian style for some friends of mine.

This market is a treasure trove for any food enthusiast in México.
