market days

Tracy at the market red snapper ready for our BBQ.  fresh from the local market
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.
