Zihuatanejo Market

February 15, 2009

On February 15, 2009, we went to the market in Zihuatanejo on the west coast of Mexico. There is a large covered market which spills out onto the surrounding streets. It was very crowded on this Sunday morning.


Cilantro is an essential herb for the local cuisine.


There were fresh local cheeses.

Several stands had fresh bakery products, mostly sweet.



The meat was cut to order at the butcher stands.


Flowers are always important in Mexico.

Aside from edibles and flowers there was a big section of the market with all kinds of hardware, clothing etc etc.



You may have noticed that there were no pictures of the fish section. They will come in the next post with a special feature on our red snapper.
