Weekly Produce Market in Puerto Morelos

Once a week, on Wednesdays, there is an outdoor produce market in Puerto Morelos, but you need to get there early. Last week we arrived at 1pm and there wasn't much left. Today at 9am there were plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from, even though there is only one vendor. I assume most of the produce is local, but I don't know for sure. 
You'll find this weekly market on the sidewalk next to the church in the main plaza.

We filled 4 large bags with papayas, limes, tomatoes, baby bananas, potatoes, cilantro, black beans, tangerines and other goodies and the total came to 180 pesos. $13.88 dollars! Exchange rate is 12.97 pesos = 1 dollar.

 Baked goods by Barbara sold out of her car next to the market. I brought home some apple cake for Luke and Ian, gone in a flash, guess it was good :-)

Cute dog!
