There was a market, Mercado Lucas de Gálvez, a few blocks from our hotel in Mérida and we went there twice. We always like visiting markets. This one is open every day. Elizabeth, one of Brooks' friends in the dance comunity, has a stall serving food, but it closes at 8am which is too early for us so we didn't go there. Food, clothing, toys, hardware, and you-name-it is sold there. And various craftsmen were at work. When we went there in late morning parts of it were shut down, but there was lots of activity.
