I never feel unsafe walking through the mercado but I am aware that anytime there are a lot of people in close proximity, there is the potential for pickpockets. I only carry as much money as I need and my $13 cell phone. Someone could steal my whole purse and it wouldn't be any big loss to me.
|Entering the mercado|
|Salsas in all forms are sold by the scoop full here.|
|Produce vendors and patrons tightly packed in the narrow pathways.|
|Room temperature chicken meat and innards for sale at a good price, the stench though is priceless.|
|The trash area was another bloody mess with beef, pork and chicken blood congealing on the floor making it a breathtaking event when walking past.|
