DEFINITIONS

A museum is a 'permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education, enjoyment, the tangible and intangible evidence of people and their environment.'
- International Council of Museums (ICOM)

A FEW WORDS ABOUT MUSEUMS AND MARKETS

Mexico's traditional markets link the present with the past and the future.

A friend leads first-time visitors through Mexico City's Anthropology Museum in Chapultepec Park. He purposefully stops at the maquetas (models) that depict markets held in the days before the arrival of the Spanish. Take a look, he says. There is a great diversity of products bartered, traded and sold.

A day or two later he takes his visitors to a traditional city market. What do you think the visitors see?

Markets provide a living connection to the past. They impart lessons that are both educational and nutritional.
