Extraordinary Experiences with Pulse

Haymarket Farmers Market This operates every Saturday morning from May through to October on 7th and 8th streets in the old Haymarket area in the centre of the city. There are now over 200 stalls at the peak of the season with everything from fresh fruit and buffalo meat to home-made root beer. You are in the middle of everything between P and Q streets, so there is lots to see and do. No, I didn’t make those streets up, and this is not Sesame Street. The Nebraskans are just practical, if sometimes lacking in imagination. lincolnhaymarket.org Lincoln, Nebraska

French Market This is the oldest market in the country and has been in operation since 1791. In the heart of the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, there are six blocks of restaurants and shopping on offer. On Wednesdays from October to June there is the Crescent City Farmers Market in addition to the usual stalls, so that’s the best time to go. There is also a flea market every day for the zany bargain hunters. Try the handmade pralines from Evans Creole Candy Factory.

Mercado Coyoacan Everything from spices to fresh fruit and souvenirs can be found in this central market. It is both charming and welcoming to tourists while being vital to the locals here is the heart of Mexico City. The prepared food is as authentically Mexican as it can get and as Coyoacan is an upmarket neighbourhood, the quality is excellent too. This is also the right neighbourhood for the Leon Trotsky Museum, the Frida Kahlo Museum and the Anahuacalli Museum - so politics, art and history buffs will be happy here too.
