Sonora Market: for the esoteric

For exotic fare of another kind, head to Sonora Market (10am-7pm; Metro Merced), otherwise known as the “witchcraft market”. This is the go-to destination for those seeking a little extra help in love, health, business and life. Stalls along the outer edge sell fairly traditional market fare – clay pots, mortars, fancy dress costumes and piñatas – but it’s in the inner corridors that the magic happens. Or rather, where the magic can be bought. Thick plastic sacks are piled high with herbal remedies to cure everything from coughs and colds to stress and obesity. Magical powders promise to make unwanted neighbours disappear, while colourful candles, complete with detailed instructions, guarantee success in love. There are lotions and potions to get rich quick, soaps to cure baldness and a variety of sprays to bring good luck. A separate section is dedicated to the sale of live animals, including black chickens used for “cleansings”. And, if you’re unsure how to cast a spell yourself, then healers, wizards, witches and shamans are all available for hire.
