Not getting sick in Mexico

Hi All -

I'm going to Mexico next week and I love to eat - anything.

Any tips on what I should/should not eat while there? For example, is lettuce OK? What about ice? What should I avoid and what can I roll the dice on?

Thanks!
...lou

PS - going to Puerto Vallarta.

Good Sunday Markets?

Thanks all - I've been to the Union Square market many years ago - bummer that it's closed Sunday.

In all ironies, here in DC all the great markets (and by great they're mediocre at best) are open on Sunday.

Good Sunday Markets?

Hi all - new to the board here.

I'll be up in NYC this weekend staying on the southern part of the upper east side. On Sundays I like to hit open air markets, in particular farmers markets sprinkled w/artisans, etc. to just walk around, take in the atmosphere, and find something cool (like an artisan cheese, soap, or odd spice) to take home.

Any suggestions given where I'm staying? I'm a DC guy so I'm not too familiar with NY, but more familiar than a stranger (go to the city about 1x year).

SoHo that morning is another option as we're eating brunch down there.

Thanks!
