Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1. I try never to miss it. The multi-vendor nearly-organic market on the grounds of Monique Duval’s bakery is a hit. I go there regularly for eggs and for Korean food, among other things. This place is on the way to being a Merida institution. If they’d only have tables, chairs, coffee and juice.
The Korean food gets my vote for the most wonderful hard-to-find-in-Yucatan food. It’s home-made by Young Hee and although the kim-chee could be a little hotter, it’s excellent. I especially like the black soybeans cooked with soy and scallions.
The bakery is the heartbeat of the market and is always mobbed with a good-natured crowd. Sourdough bread and fruit muffins are favorites and people walk out of there with armloads of stuff, like they’re afraid of running out during the week.
