San Antonio’s Market Square

As I’m lucky enough to do – I got to wander the Market Square of San Antonio – locally referred to as the Mercado:

San Antonio - Mercado 1

And thanks to Fiesta, this area was crowded with people coming for the five different stages of music, the shopping and the street vendors around the indoor market:

And for many, the first stop is Mi Tierra, one of the oldest family run restaurants in the market, open 24 hours, with a bar, restaurant and bakery counter:

As I wandered and tasted and enjoyed the vivid colours and happy people, I got to do what I really love – people-watch. And taste some sweetness too.
