El Mercado in San Miguel de Allende

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I recently traveled to San Miguel de Allende, an exceptionally beautiful colonial city nestled in the central highlands of Mexico.  I was so impressed with the magnificent architecture found there and with the wealth of Spanish colonial history.  Whenever I travel to new destinations, I like to experience as much of the local flavor, as possible.  I try and always make a point of visiting some of the local markets, where you find the true heart and soul of a country.  For Mexicans, el mercado is essential to living and most of what they eat is purchased there.  I hope you enjoy these photos of the mercado and a few other places I went to while in San Miguel de Allende.
