Some of the chefs in the group posted beautiful photos of this market when we got back to Chicago. I was in pure survival mode, trying to make it through the heat and crowds. There was a lot to see, much in the way of native fruit and vegetables.

This is a great market to buy the indigenous spice rubs known as recados. In the fish section, a small group of young men was playing badass, rowdy music. It fit the market perfectly I only wish I’d heard it on the way in, to psych myself up!
