…I have, though I recognize the fun would be pretty short-lived, as this would likely burn my skin. Where did I have such a ridiculous idea? At a Mexican market in Denver, along South Federal Boulevard.
If you’ve never ventured into an international or ethnic market of any sort, I highly recommend it. Smell some new things. Explore a little. You never know what treasures you might find, like pre-made mole sauce, religious candles on display next to ketchup, new vegetables or even a pool of jalapeno that makes you imagine crazy swimming adventures.
I felt a little bit uncomfortable before I arrived, but as soon as I was inside, that went away. I was a lover of food and too fascinated by everything around me to even appear like an intruder of some sort. Frank’s mom happened upon this particular market in search of a special kind of cheese; find a reason to step outside your comfort zone and see what you’ll discover!
I invite you to browse a selection of photos I took at the market–and then please post your comments below or send us a message via Twitter (@TheFoodventure) about your own experiences with ethnic markets. If you haven’t been, what’s stopping you? If you have, what treasures have you discovered? We want to hear your stories!
