This is really a fabuloso articles complete with tantalizing pictures of the Tuesday market here in SMA. It is really and truly a marvel and it emerges from a vacant empty lot at sunrise on martes and disappears with hardly a trace except some basura blowing around 12 hours later at sundown.
But what an amazing 12 hours it is! Just once before I head home I really must go there at dawn and watch them set up which I really must see to believe logistically with that many vendors in three different sections.
And we’re not talking a grid pattern with predictable aisles at right angles either. It is designed involuntarily or on purpose to lead the shopper here and there with sights, smells, taco stands and live music to keep you entertained AND parted with your peso. You absolutely never know what to expect as you head down yet another aisle that also has roving vendors.
As I mentioned, the pictures in this article are first rate and very evocative of the ambiance of the Tuesday market but don’t just take my word for out. Go and get one of those sturdy plastic woven bolsas you see sold everywhere and start making those deals!
