Favourite produce market in Mexico, and 5 Mexican ingredients you could not live without?

I will always love the Central de Abastos markets in Oaxaca. Its diversity is extraordinary and I have visited it with chefs from Oaxaca who still find new ingredients despite having lived in the region for 40 years or more.

I couldn’t live without chillies, vanilla, chocolate, avocadoes and tomatoes, all ingredients indigenous to Mexico.
