El Mercado Organico de Xochilmilco
This is the organic market in th courtyard of St. Thomas Church. It is a smaller market with tables and benchs and plenty of shade so it is an ideal place to meet and talk.
Last weekend I went to the Mercado de Xochomilco which is held in the courtyard of The Iglesia de San Tomas (St. Thomas Church) where I visited with several persons from Los Estados Unidos (USA) and brought organic vegetables. I was there from about 10 am to 2 pm. It was the first time that I had met African Americans in Oaxaca, one lady is an author who has lived there for 25 years and another gentleman is from Seattle who, with his wife, travels 9 months out of the year and goes back home for 3 month...very interesting!
I met another family from the USA and one lady from there, who did not want her picture included, but visited with me for a long time. All in all, it was a very pleasant and unexpected adventure.
