This authentic Mexican market is loaded with just about everything. Here you can find delicious Mexican meals to meats, pastries, cakes, groceries, breads, horchata, agua frescas, and more. Stock up on conchas for breakfast or head there on the weekend to find the best menudo with handmade tortillas and a very cold Michelada. If you are a local, then you know they make cakes from scratch and decorate for any occasion you are celebrating. Make sure to keep them in mind when looking for your next traditional rosca.

I am going to start off by saying that stockton has the most authentic Mexican meat markets from any of the cities close by (tracy, lathrop,lodi, Manteca etc.) When rating this one in particular I took off a star because of the terrible parking setup and the somewhat consistent mistakes that the butchers make. This meat market is found inside a mexican goods store that offers fresh produce ( such as ginger, garlic, cilantro, spinach etc), mexican ice Popsicles or paletas, mexican candy, over the counter Mexican medicines and teas, spices and fresh food. You won't be greeted upon entrance because it is super busy and if you're going directly to the meat section there isn't a sign or sticker on the ground to tell you where the line starts. If the butchers are busy cutting meat then you simply approach the glass counter and they will approach you with a friendly greeting or you can just get their attention and tell them what you're looking for they will eagerly help. If there's a lot of people by the glass then you wait behind anyone that's being helped and once they're done the butchers will approach you. The only issue I ever encountered is that you sometimes have to be specific on what you want or don't want such as in not wanting chicken that's already marinated or getting meat with fat taken out etc. The baked items or pan dulce offered here aren't that great, I find them too be too dry and flavorless so for this reason I would suggest going elsewhere for your mexican bread. The food offered is delicious but I haven't tried their fresh drinks. During precovid times, there was a section with tables where one could eat but that's not available at the time. The best thing out of any purchase here is that if you purchase $60 worth of meat you qualify for a free 1liter soda. If you sign up for their reward system, you get free items if you rack up enough points such as a fresh drink. The parking gets packed during the morning and mid afternoon and it's a mess at times because the side diagonal parking inside the small space given only works if the other drivers know how to park correctly otherwise your stuck waiting for that person to leave because your car will not be able to squeeze through such a small space.
Stop here to see if the had pozole, I ended getting pozole and menudo. Both had amazing flavor like my grama used to make. Definitely will be back to try more food
