Meat, cheese, pasta, fruit, vegetables--I was wishing I had a kitchen. If you've ever been to the markets in Mexico City, this is smaller but much, much more appetizing--with all due respect to the markets of Mexico.

Always enjoy looking at the vegetables and the meat and cheese at the markets in Europe. One great benefit is the restaurants in the market. Fresh food and great prices, go for lunch you will be happy you did.

San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind
stalls with an array of products in one of the most
