Markets are among my favorite places to get a sense of the basic characteristics of a culture in a certain region. I love the sights, sounds, smells of all the different produce and articles of common use that are offered at the markets, be it in France, Belgium, Turkey, Morocco, Sri Lanka, or anywhere on the planet.
The following photos are taken at the Mercado Municipal in the center of Merida, YUC. They only provide a few sights of a typical Mayan market. Imagine the sounds and smells.
