One of our very favorite places to visit was the giant market in the middle of the beautiful city of Guadalajara. I knew it as the Mercado Libertad (Liberty Market), and it’s also called the Mercado San Juan de Dios.
I could have spent weeks browsing everything on offer in the mercado; it is the largest indoor market in Latin America. It opened in 1958, and it’s still going strong today.
There were always lines of horse-drawn carriages waiting on the street to offer rides to the tourists.
The vendors were usually prepared to haggle on the prices. I sometimes had a difficult time playing that game — I was a kid, and when I saw something I wanted, I got excited!
