The good thing about being stuck in Mazatlan is we really like old town. The restaurants, the people and the El Mercado Pino Suarez or market. We wish the marina was within walking distance but luckily the taxis are plentiful and not too expensive. We set off early today for the market to get more provisions for the trip north. It opens daily at 6:00 am and is the hub of old town. What a different shopping experience than going to a grocery store. People walk or bus here daily to do their shopping for dinner. Counters selling prepared food, butchers, produce, cheese, pastries and even clothes all under one enormous roof. All the vendors were very helpful and friendly. Walking past pig heads and cow carcasses is not for the faint of heart and could literally turn someone into a vegetarian. But the freshness of the meat, fish and produce is amazing. So our freezer is full. No worries, no whole body parts are shown below 🙂

That is smoked tuna.  Melt in your mouth.  A piece that size was only 70 pesos which is $4.47 USD.  We need to go back and get more!
