Salta market – this sure ain’t Pike Place Market

**Vegetarian warning – this post contains some super gross looking cow parts about half way down the page.**

**Don’t read this if you are eating or planning on eating in the next 12 hours.**

The Salta market started out innocently enough. As with all markets, this one had the usual interesting and photogenic items for sale. Cheese, spices, veggies, Jesus.

It even sells cocoa leaves which are chewed or brewed in tea to alleviate altitude sickness and as a mild stimulant. They are illegal in some countries and some parts of Argentina.

As in most markets, this one also  has a gross meat section.


Hooves aren't edible are they?
