De La Cruz Market
Our Sunday in Mexico was spent at the nearby market in De La Cruz where we stocked up on fresh fruit, vegetables, salsas, breads, cheeses and delicious snacks for the week. I was surprised by the array of products, mainly those uniquely created fusion foods thought up by the expats living in the area (jalapeño humus)! The market has any food you could possibly need for your personal stores, as well as beautiful handmade Mexican crafts, and local food vendors selling tacos de mole, de pescado, empanadas, and fresh juices out on the jetty. We definitely did not leave hungry. My favorite part of the market was the permanent seafood stands selling all of the various species caught right off the coast. This was also sad, seeing all of the whole fish left over as the market was closing. I am sure they are at least frozen, or sold to nearby restaurants. Nevertheless, it is too bad we have not learned to take only what we can use from Mother Nature. If you find yourself in the area, keep your Sunday open to pay De La Cruz a visit. Even if you aren’t in need of groceries there is plenty of eye-candy and tasty bits to munch on while enjoying the fresh salty air and seaside views.
