El mercado Lucas de Galvez
This market is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Being a “first-time” traveler this is my first look at some of the trade and commerce that goes back thousands of years. The idea of a market “or mercado en espanol) is so integral to humanity. The mercado at the center of Merida clearly displays almost anything you could dream of from the Yucatan area. Im not sure if there were many english speakers among the vendors of the market – which was fantastic. This is a really great place to learn about the true culture of a people as well as find some really amazing goods.
