Mexican Market

Today's picture is from the early 1900's and it shows a street market in Mexico where people are selling vegetables. I can remember going to Mexico in the early 60's and it looked much the same. I believe most food was bought and sold through individuals coming together at a "market", not in traditional grocery stores.

  1. Thanks for these interesting Mexican shots! I also enjoyed the Mexican Peddler of a few days ago. Very reminiscent of how Mexico used to be.

  2. these shots are from before my time, but still they remind me of time I spent as a child hooking from school and wandering the markets when I lived there for a time - thanks!

  3. I have never been to Mexico and would love to visit someday. If it weren't for the men in this picture I would think it was Afghanistan. The women look like they are wearing hijabs.
