Part of what we love living here in Mazatlán is that you can buy almost anything you need so conveniently. “Ambulatory” street vendors walk, push carts, ride bicycles (many of them modified to carry their wares) or motorcyles around town, selling their wares. There are also many open-air stalls that make eating healthy (or not) quite convenient.
This blog post is just a collection of a few street vendors photos. Enjoy!
Ice cream vendor on Avenida del Mar
Our favorite fruit seller, who works our beach
And one of his competitors
Gelatinas, or jello molds
Various refreshing drinks, this photo taken in Guadalajara
Giant burrito seller, again in Guadalajara
Vegetable seller: Nice to be able to buy healthy street food!
Another kind of fruit seller, not the ambulatory kind 🙂
Flower and plant vendor
Ceviche (fresh fish or shrimp with lime juice and some vegies) and Tostilocos (pack of tortilla chips covered with salsa and sometimes beans or cheese or meat)
Sugar cane and cane juice vendor, in a market
My favorite calla lily seller, at sunset on the malecón in front of our house
And this beach vendor came up to our house to measure my laptop and make me a custom-fitted computer bag out of beach trash (chip, candy and cookie wrappers)
You have a nice location to savor the city-right across from the Malecon. Counting down-8 weeks til we see Mazatlan again!
All that fresh fruit makes my mouth water! Just over 7 weeks and we'll be in Mazatlan. Someday we will move there, once I convince my hubby that there are other kinds of fishing besides drilling a hole in the ice and sitting there shivering all day.
Marty I am so glad that you will be able to be down here soon! That is terrific! Thanks for visiting the blog!
Oooooh, I want a computer bag, too. How cool is that! Does it feel strong, Dianne?
I LOVE the bag, Zoe. If I took 30 of them with me when I travel, I could make big money everywhere I go. It's gone on business trips with me to India, a couple of times to Europe, and quite a few times north. Yes, definitely strong. I recommend them. I've now seen them around town. When I asked this gentleman to make mine it was a custom job.
