Mercado San Juan de Dios

San Juan de Dios is one of San Miguel de Allende’s principal traditional markets, just a five minute walk from the main square. There are two sections to this market: indoor and outdoor. The indoor section is predominantly food-oriented, featuring a wealth of stalls with magnificent displays, with fruit and vegetables piled up in high in a beautiful orderly fashion. Large baskets and balloons decorate the stalls with each of the stallholders vying for customers. Cactus leaves and tunas (small red fruit from one type of cactus) are trimmed and prepared to eat. The market is dotted with eateries serving hearty meals such as pozole, a spicy broth with pork and corn. A selection of fruits and vegetables is available to snack on the go such as jicama (Mexican yam or turnip), covered in chili, salt and lemon to taste. Outdoors the stalls sprawl along the main road and retreat back from the road for a few blocks. They range from raw meats to extravagant flower arrangements and clothes. This market promises a reliable source of good, cheap produce and is also where many locals meet up to socialize. Open every day from 9 am to 6 pm, you can throw yourself into the life of San Miguel de Allende by interacting with local traders and produce. Source: By S
