Best Mexican Market - 2011
Pro's Ranch Market
Pro's Ranch Market is the supermercado to end all supermercados. Step one upon entering Pro's Ranch? Avoid the "don't go shopping hungry" dilemma by hitting up the sprawling eatery with made-to-order Mexican combo platters packed with tamales, tacos, and mounds of carne. Also make sure to stop by the thirst-quenching aguas frescas stand to fortify yourself for your shopping trip. Watch tortillas fly fresh off the presses and into bags bound for your kitchen. Hit up the pescadería and carnicería to ogle the fish and meat displays, which include a pig's head made out of chorizo, and a real cow's skull for making cabeza. Then wrap up the trip with a couple of dulces from the panadería, packed with cookies, sweet rolls, and cakes.
