Shopping for Ingredients (Store/Mercado List)
Posted October 13th, 2011 - 12:14 am by from Mexico City, Mexico (Permalink)
Anyone know of good places to purchase quality and/or rare ingredients? I am currently in need of some stellar heirloom (heritage) tomatoes, and though no one with whom I have spoken is aware of their existence, I am convinced they must be findable; this is, after all, the birth place of the tomato. Or a basil (albahaca) plant?

Thanks and I look forward to cooking with all of you!

Maybe in Mercado de Medellin:

But I'm not sure of the name in Spanish to find them :S

I love cooking and eating :P so count me in, when and where?

Thanks, but I've tried Mercado de Medallin, Mercado Michoacan, the Tacubaya Mercado...
I was, however, able to find some other elusive ingredients at Amsterdam Market on Amsterdam and Ozuluama.
I need to try the Mercado La Merced, Mercado de Jamaica, and I'm sure plenty others.
Are there any "fancy" or specialized grocery stores, or is Superama the limit?
I don't know what to call them in Spanish, either! which makes it nigh impossible to ask the vendors.
And I'm not sure when and where, but consider yourself counted!
