But upon closer inspection, one sees that this is not the typical market. The San Juan Market specializes in exotic foods. Gourmet chefs come here to find ingredients that they will not find elsewhere.
The pile of young goats in this stall is not extremely exotic for Mexico... but read the sign and see what else this stall has to offer.
They also have venison, wild boar, ostrich, pheasant and crocodile, among other things. Here you can also buy ant larvae, maguey worms, and grasshoppers! Yummy!
Want to make a really big omelet? How about some ostrich eggs?
Other stalls sell Oriental vegetables, unusual herbs and spices, and edible flowers.
Imported cheeses, sausages and other foods are for sale.
There are parts of the San Juan Market which are not for the squeamish, but it is an interesting place to visit.
