Our new friends from Easy Breeze, Andre and Victor, have been showing us around the Ensenada shopping scene. They took us to Walmart, an electronics store, a great Oaxacan restaurant, the reverse osmosis water depot and a number of other useful spots.
They also showed us some special health-oriented stops. These included a health clinic, a dentist and some upscale grocery stores. The took us to Maria Luisa, a small US style market with very nice produce, meat and fresh tortillas.
La Milpa was our next stop. This is a health food store that is comparable to those found in the Bay Area. They carry all kinds of supplements and organic foods.
Hogaza is a very nice artisan bakery that sells bread at Maria Louisa, L.A. Cetto Cava, and other spots around town. We visited their bakery at the Escina de Bodegas, an old winery building. In addition to bread, they were selling French style fruit tarts, chocolate and some other gourmet items.
Also located in the old winery are a nice Pescadería D’Garo fish and produce stores. Garo had some very nice homemade yogurt along with many spices and sauces. The Escina de Bodegas is on Miramar between 6th and 7th.
