couldn't see spending 20 pesos on 33 grams of black pepper at the grocery store, so today I tried the seed store, Semillas Guadalajara, behind the Mercado Madero. only $200 pesos per kilo as compared to $600, so I got 100 grams for that same 20 pesos.

also, at Mercado Bravo, I scored a liter of crude lard, manteca, for 25 pesos, compared to 90 pesos per liter for my preferred brand, Porky, at supermarkets. I don't know about the quality yet, though.
