Every Sunday there is an open air market in Empalme, a town south of Guaymas, about half an hour from here. Yesterday my friend and I had the opportunity to go with some locals to help us find it and translate if necessary.
It was a few streets long and the stall were very varied: clothes, shoes, electronics and furniture, all mostly used, food stands, produce and meat.
Used camping gear
My find for the day was a (used) 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup with pour spout for 30 pesos ($2.50). I need one to make my yoghurt as the 2 cup one too small. My friend had been looking unsuccessfully for one up norht on her recent trips, so I was thrilled to find one :)
We got some produce and go the rest of our shopping at Sams and Walmart on the way home. I'm all stocked up for the week.
