Mercado de Sonora information
This place has all the ingredients for Mexican witchcraft. Aisles are crammed with stalls hawking potions, amulets, voodoo dolls and other esoterica. This is also the place for a limpia (spiritual cleansing), a ritual involving clouds of incense and a herbal brushing. Sadly some vendors at the market trade illegally in endangered animals. It's two blocks south of metro Merced.
