Mexican market opening


De Leon is a fantastic Mexican deli, but frankly, the selfish part of me wants more awesome Mexican goodness in town. And that might just be happening on the corner of Ruby and Nora, where Mercado del(?) Pueblo is opening. (I might have the “del” part wrong, my memory is rather rusty.)

With promises of freshly baked goods and tamales, I think there is reason to get a bit excited here.
