Announcing El Mercadito

El Mercadito on The Other Side of The TortillaSince we launched The Other Side of The Tortilla in 2009, we’ve often been asked for recommendations of authentic Mexican products that we like and where to buy them. We recognize that in some areas of the United States, it can be quite difficult to find a local source for these ingredients. We’re excited to share with you that we’ve created a collection of some of these products all in one place as an Amazon aStore and incorporated it as a tab on The Other Side of The Tortilla for you to be able to shop from our favorite and recommended products and have it shipped to you, wherever you may live.

La Costeña frijoles bayos refritosWe’ve carefully curated a selection of foods, kitchen tools, appliances, gadgets, cookware, bakeware and more to help you bring the Mexican experience to your kitchen and home. You can shop the store by either clicking on the El Mercadito tab above on the menu bar, or by clicking here to go to El Mercadito, The Other Side of The Tortilla’s Amazon aStore.

As you know, we sometimes use affiliate links in our posts to items that are sold on Amazon. This means that we earn a few cents on the dollar if our readers purchase items linked from our posts. You do not pay any more that what you would pay if you were buying the same product without clicking our affiliate link. By shopping in El Mercadito and purchasing any item through Amazon during your visit, we earn a small portion of sales, and you’re helping maintain and grow The Other Side of The Tortilla so that we can continue to bring you recipes, information on Mexican culture and travel stories from our time spent exploring Mexico.

Thank you for constantly asking questions and providing feedback to help us improve your experience as a part of our comunidad! We’ll continually update the store to bring you the best selection of our favorite products. We hope you enjoy the store!

  • If you’re looking for a product that you don’t see or need a recommendation, don’t hesitate to leave a comment here, on Facebook or tweet your request to @MauraHernandez and I’ll do my best to make a recommendation or find what you’re looking for and add it to the store if it’s available.
