it is the last full day in Oaxaca, in Mexico, so I had to go back to the Central de Abastos, the wholesale farmers market here. and it was worth any minute i was there. can’t wait to come back here and go back to the market.
another photo from the Central de Abastos Market in Oaxaca. this is not the market right off the central plaza but more or less the wholesale market that is used by farmers from all over the region. the amount of stuff one can buy there is insane. there are mountains of mangos, papayas, onions, all kinds of herbs, chickens … and anything you could ever think you would need. between the inside and outside space the market covers probably two football fields and it is easy to get lost in the narrow walkways. but if you want to get a feel for the food culture of oaxaca it is a great place.
