Mercado de la Merced : Michelin's recommendations

Like other markets, this one has stalls with fruits, vegetables and other foods. But you may be intrigued by all the objects hanging over your head. Piñatas - traditional accessories for Mexican parties, especially children's birthdays - were introduced to Mexico by the Spanish. Traditionally they are smashed open to ward off evil, causing bits of sugarcane, oranges and sweets to fall out.
