I, Zeb the Duck, and my Alaska cousin, Eider Duck, went to the market in Mazatlan, Mexico. This is not like going to the mall at home. The market is exciting! They sell so much stuff here. This man is selling meat.
We have a kitchen in our condo, but the humans do not want to cook on vacation, so we did not buy anything from him. Here is more meat.
Another man cuts this into smaller portions.
Moving away from the fresh meat, we admired these hats.
This cabinet has so many ceramic skulls and masks.
Mom bought a small skull. We don’t know why, but she liked it. There are so many booths selling souvenirs of Mexico.
These are so colorful.
Look at all these shells.
Other booths sold clothing and leather. This market, or Mercado, has everything. The lunch counter looked inviting, but we did not eat here.
Maybe next time. This man is entertaining people while they shop and eat.
He is working for tips only. Piñatas are at many Mexican parties. This one is a typical shape.
At parties, or fiestas, the piñata is filled with candy. The young humans take turns trying to break the piñata and then everybody dives for the candy. It looks like a lot of fun for humans. These are special piñatas for Christmas.
Aren’t they fun? This is a sample of what you might see walking around the Mercado in Mazatlan.
This place is wonderful. We hope you visit a Mexican market soon. You will have a great experience. We did.
