Tour Mazatlan’s Centro Historico – The Pino Suárez Mercado
October 16, 2011
This post, about Mazatlán’s Pino Suárez Mercado (market) is the third in the tour of Mazatlán’s Centro Historico. Of course the market would be included on my tour of Centro Historico… but there are several special reasons why I decided to do this post today.
Let’s go to the market!
At the top of this post is a picture of the exterior of Mazatlán’s Pino Suárez Mercado. This 1899 structure was built of iron and steel in the art nouveau style of the Eiffel Tower, which had been constructed just a few years earlier. The photo shows a city bus in the foreground, not an ideal addition to the picture – but I would have to come out in the middle of the night to take a photo not showing busses, cars, taxis, and hordes of people. It’s a busy place!
Where is the mercado? It’s about five blocks from the Plazuela Machado, and it occupies a city block between Aquilles Serdan and Benito Juarez and Melchor Ocampo and Leandro Valle.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Mazatlán’s Pino Suárez Mercado!
