Opps! That's not a flower,...or maybe a Pig Flower?Flowers are an important part of life in Mexico. You can buy them in the market and sometimes from people who bring lovely bouquets in from the country. Flowers are inexpensive and make life just a little more beautiful.

Taxco Flower Market:

Hey, Hey!! Somebody get me out of here!!

















Inside of Taxco Market.Food shopping in Taxco’s local market, Mercado Tetitlan, is an experience not to be missed. Eye openers, like whole hog heads and mountains of fresh mangos will greet you at every turn. There are women selling hand made tortillas and the masaA Man Who Loves His Chicken! if you’d like to make your own tortillas at home, cremerias for cheese, eggs, and crema. Fruit and vegetable stands, large and small, are at all sides and there are mountains of fresh chicken, including all parts–heads and feet are no exception. Sr. Fidencio Delgado Arroyo in the photo at the left has some of the most delicioius chicken we've had. It’s all very wonderful. One of the best parts of marketing is that you can have a home cooked meal right there. Deep in the market is a building where you can buy fresh baked bread, delivered hot from the bakery in huge baskets that fit nicely on the heads of the carriers as they have a hole in the middle (the baskets not the carriers). Right there are a couple of dozen small kitchens, each with a few tables and a señora with lots of pots on the stove. Fresh juice stands are also wedged in here and there in the same building. Try Our Bolillos...Fabulous!Dive in! This is the place for comida casera, fresh home-cooked authentic Mexican food. After eating a delicious meal of mole rojo, clamoli verde, or a simple caldo de pollo take a moment to walk down to the flower market. Flowers are an essential part of life here. White flowers are to be avoided as home decorations or gift bouquets because they are the flowers traditionally used for funerals. Now, you’ve had lunch, you have your mangos, your chicken, and a large bunch of calla lilies and it’s time for the health food store. Take home some herbal tea and enjoy your siesta.



Carnitas -- A meaty treat for those who would really like to experience a Mexican Treat: Claudia & her family makes what are called: Carnitas and gorditas. Carnitas are the meaty muscles that run next to the spine called lomo in spanish, and gorditas are parts of the pig which have an excess of fat. Either way it will be a one time luxury for the lover of pork. We, when we are in Taxco, would often order some carnitas for Saturday-- the only day that claudia makes it. For carnitas you can go an often they will have a few pieces; if you have some friends coming over and want like a 1/2 pound it is often worth calling ahead to reserve. For gorditas, you can just go around 12:00 PM. and pick the pieces you would like from the basket.
Claudia has been kind to us during our stay at Altos de Redondo ( the little alley way which runs at the corner of  the Centro Joyero in the Plazuela de Bernal. You just go up and then down and you will come across a little shop on the right hand side just next to a small convenience store. We would make a salsa mexicana and have some corn tortillas and a bit of crema alpura; don't forget to squeeze some limon on top of the taco you make with it and then, "die and go to heaven (only for real pork lovers!)

Quesadillas in the evening "ANTOJITOS ERICK"
OnLydia and a smaller Eric. Now you will see a larger version of Eric. Calle Ojeda, just up from the zócalo, you'll find Lydia serving up a variety of quesadillas and gorditas hot off the grill. Everything is freshly made to order even the tortillas. Some of the filling choices include queso Oaxaca, mushrooms, a chicken mix with chipotles, onion, garlic and longaniza, potatoes, or carnitas (often called chalitos). If you like, they are served with picaditas of cream and grated cheese. Next you can add salsa verde or salsa roja and on the side have some radishes steeped in lime juice and a bit of salad with chiles manzano. These chiles are fantastic; they have the taste of melons and the power of jalpenos. This moveable feast arrives on the street at about 7:00 P.M. and is gone at 11:00 P.M.




Vegetables and fruit

See Cacho or his brother Javier in the market just up the stairs from the flower stalls. They will special order for you. We have them bring asparagus from Mexico City and have never been disappointed with the quality and freshness.

Sra Florea on Callejón Mesquite #1 makes fabulous tortillas by hand. BUT, you have to order them a day ahead. Tel: (762)622-3303

In the market there are two or three commercial tortillerias, and several women selling handmade tortillas. These are thicker than the commercial variety and come in blue or white corn. The blue ones are especially delicious. Toast them over the open flame on your stove, add some chicken or other cooked meat or cheese, some sliced tomatoes and a bit of salsa Mexicana and you'll have one of the best meals you've ever eaten.
