Bro, if you can’t find the Calimax something is seriously wrong. Is this a late night drunk post🙈 .... it’s been there for YEARS and it’s got a huge sign! Come on this isn’t a real post are you testing us?

Ken,
You appear to go to Baja frequently....pole-Lining and romantic getaways con su esposa....I am surprised you have not ventured beyond hotels and Oxxos for your vittles...

Ya gotta get out of that Jeep and walk around a bit more....:light:




Don't believe everything you think....

The Rancho Market, which is across the road from the first Pemex as you drive toward town, has a pretty good selection of everything as well. They have a deli and have fresh ham and cheese croissants in the morning, as well as fruit pastries. Produce, a few weeks ago was very good.
In Rancho Percebu, (KM 20 south of town) there is a gentleman (Ernesto) who grows fresh corn, cantaloupe, peppers etc.. will pick right off the plant.

Hi,

The best “Gringo” Market I know of is located across the street from the best Medical Clinic and the First PEMEX Station just North of town. It’s called the Rancho Market Deli and Liquor.

In your Jeep? What size? Where do you mount it? How do you secure it?

John


It is the 65 quart dual zone fridge. I place it atop my interior rack behind my drivers and passenger seats. I tie it down on its handles.

Calimax is the large store in town. There is also DJ's market and La Vaquita plus a number of smaller shops. Vegetables can be hit and miss regarding selection and quality even at the vegetable stand. We'll usually hit at least a couple of stores to check out the availability and freshness. For seafood there are a couple of fish markets and Calimax.

You're talking like a High School kid Tim? Bro?
I am a light to non drinker, Ham is too salty and causes changes in my blood pressure. Cheese has a horrible taste that I cannot tolerate. I can't/won't eat cantaloupes/melons, aguas/jugos, bread/pasteries, beef, a lot of staples you find in Mexico. Vegetables, black beans and nuts are best for keeping my blood sugar steady, so that's what I stay with. Bro..

Located on Google Maps


No wonder I couldn't find the Calimax. It was built since my last visit in 2016. ;)

Recently Calimax in SF was expanded quite a bit with much increased floor space and more shelving. Food choices also have been expanded and there are many more items gringos see to like (me for instance). Not perfect as we still use Rancho for bread and bananas - good because it is close by. The customers at Calimax are still heavily weighted for the local population. I suspect all the gringos shop there now. The best thing about Calimax is now days we do not have to go 5 different stores to get our basic needs. And I said before the veggies are pretty good, but not as good and the guy from Mexicali who shows up on Tuesday and Saturday.

What are the best spots to pick up fish, shrimp, and carne asada?
