PHX - looking for a good coctel de camarones (mex style shrimp cocktail)

Hey hounds,

I was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction.. Last year I wandered over to the Town & Country market, and the highlight for me was a guy that sold cocteles out of a cooler. I'd never had one before, I just always saw it on menus and figured it was a regular old plain shrimp and dipping sauce sort of deal.

If you don't know what I'm referring to, it's sort of a soupy mix of smaller cooked peeled shrimp, diced up avocado, onion, cilantro, all submerged in a well-spiced tomato juice or clamato sort of deal.

The place near my mom's house puts orange soda in theirs, and while I know this is a typical thing, I'm not a fan of the fizzy taste. So, shooting for a non-soda coctel.

I'm in the east valley, and I'll take a drive if its worth it, I'm not too picky about distance. Maybe not Glendale far, but I'm sure there's gotta be something closer.

Also, any info on the farmers market guy would also be appreciated, if he still hits that market, where else he goes, etc. (I moved away a few years ago, so I haven't been to the markets much; I'm home visiting family)
