Green markets, vanilla beans, and mole

gypsyesquire | Jul 30, 2008 07:41 PM

I am going to Mexico City for four days for work and have the day free this coming Sunday. From the Lonely Planet message board, someone suggested day trip to a small town outside Mexico City for some fresh mole that I could possibly bring back with me.

Can anyone help me out and tell me

1. Is there a green market I can visit in Mexico City on Sunday to take pictures and get some fresh fruit?
2. Is it possible to bring mole back?
3. Where can I buy some real vanilla beans in Mexico City? Is there a nice gourmet food shop? I'd also like to buy some nice vanilla extract.
