While looking for a different market promoted in the guide books, we stumbled the Anton Martin market. It is smaller and we almost missed it but much more vibrant market in the heart of the city. There is a lesson there about how you find delight in travel.
Anton Martin (Not Aston Martin, that’s something different.) is self contained in a single block in the dense city center. It has fruits and vegetables, little restaurants, seafood, meats – especially the ubiquitous ham – and other delights. Especially fun was Paz at Donde Sanchez. We will talk more about her in a post on vermouths.
I suggest and recommend highly taking a hour or tour in the Anton Martin market in the neighborhood La Huerta.
