tagged market days, Mexico and puerto escondido
Wednesdays and Saturdays are the official market days in Puerto Escondido, when farmers come into town to sell their freshly harvested fruits/vegetables, seafood, poultry, and meat. We bought avocados, limes, onions, scallions, tomatoes, cilantro, fried tortillas, and soft corn tortillas, pineapple, mangos, red snapper and shrimp. Our menu: fresh guacamole, with crispy tortilla chips. Fresh fruit drinks made in a blender and spiked with rum. Grilled whole red snapper with olive oil, cilantro, garlic and lime; shrimp with garlic and oil, baked potatoes and grilled scallion. It was all so delicious, we made the same dinner a few nights later.
