The Mespil Gourmet Food Market in Dublin

The Mespil Gourmet Food Market in Dublin
One of my favorite parts of travel is discovering restaurants, shops, or markets that bring me to neighborhoods I might otherwise never explore. It’s one thing to wander around neighborhoods outside of the center of a city, but it’s another thing to have a destination in mind.

Weekend Craft Bazaars in Mexico City
Weekends are a popular time for tianguis, weekly or bi-weekly markets, to pop up throughout Mexico City.  If you’re looking to browse some of the handicrafts and art unique to Mexico then I recommend combining a visit to the Bazar Artesanal de Coyoacán (Coyoacán Crafts Bazaar) with a visit to the Bazar Sabado (Saturday Bazaar) in the San Ángel neighborhood of the city.

Saturday is Market Day

Saturday is Market Day
... flirt with dark green cucumbers. A delicate scent of basil and thyme fills the air. Farmers rub shoulders with health food people. It is not just a market but it is gathering place for organic growers. All produce is organically grown. That’s what I like about this place. I went home with a basket full of fresh vegetables and a loaf of crispy, still warm bread. Crispy Loaves and Buns at Noordermarkt   But if organic produce is not your thing, come here on a Monday morning when the market...
