Mexico Information

Antojitos of Michoacan star
The Pacific Central Mexican state of Michoacan has a distinguished, primarily indigenous, culinary history. Although its most famous traditional dish may be pozole, for me its best gustatory creations are its masa-based antojitos/snacks like corundas, stuffed gorditas, uchepos, and tacos al vapor.

Bolillos and Teleras Mexico's Iconic Breads star
Often called the "bread of Mexico," corn tortillas are definitely the major staple throughout the majority of the country. Yet, in most of Mexico, two traditional breads have also deservedly attained iconic status, teleras and bolillos.

Farmers' Market Mexican Style star
Dating back to pre-Hispanic Mexico and Central America, tianguis are bazaar-like, open air markets, that in one form or another, occur throughout Mexico's nine regions. Travelers can learn much about the region's people,traditions,culture, foods, and products by attending a tianguis.

Glossary of Traditional Mexican Sweets star
Mexico is home to an array of traditional delicious dulces. Many of these sweets/candies have their roots in the country's Spanish Colonial past. This article provides a useful glossary of some of the most popular and best confections that the country has to offer.

MercadoLibre Latin America's Ebay star
Traditionally, Mexico has been "market oriented," be it tianguis/market days, indoor municipal markets, or open-air markets, like Zamora's. So, should it come as a surprise that the e-commerce online marketplace is becoming quite popular in Mexico and much of the rest of Latin America?

Mexico's Modern Supermarkets star
An interesting, safe, non-threatening, and hygenic way for a tourist or a new expatriate to obtain an initial "feel" for the people and products of a city or region in Mexico is to investigate and explore their local modern supermarkets. Fortunately, in Mexico there are plenty to choose from.

Traditional Indoor Markets in Mexico star
When visiting a particular city or region of Mexico, an excellent way to get a "feel" for its people, products, traditions, culture, and typical culinary offerings is to go to one or more of its indoor markets known as mercados municipales, mercados publicos, or just simply as "el mercado."

Walmart a New Mexican Tradition star
Walmart/Walmex in Mexico is the country's largest private sector employer. No matter what one may think of that corporation's policies/practices, it is providing hundreds of thousands of Mexican citizens with much needed pesos. Plus, in my opinion, they have the best bolillos y pan rusticos!
