There is a part of the Mercado 10 de Agosto, where there is booth after booth of roasted pigs on display. I haven’t figured out how to just to get the meat and skin, so this is the meal the ladies at the first booth sold me. Pig came with a nice bit of crispy skin. The biscuit looking things are mashed potatoes that were formed into balls and cooked on a grill. The sauce is the orange bag to the left and the salad is in the green bag. It is a really nice way to bundle things up to go. I can’t tell you how many times I have taken meals home to find out that the sauce was all over the inside of my shopping tote.

Farm fresh cheese wrapped in some sort of leaf. The cheese was like a very dry cottage cheese.

The Hominy was cooked and ready to eat. It made a great breakfast with butter, sugar, and cinnamon.

The Peanuts were not actually bought in the market, but from a street vendor outside. I am quite addicted to them. I buy them anytime I see a street vendor, and I don’t already have some on my person.
