MEXICO: ABASTOS, AT THE HEART OF THE LARGEST MARKET IN THE WORLD
The country's second-largest financial center behind the stock exchange
Covering 327 hectares, the Abastos market in Mexico City is the largest fresh produce market in the world. 150,000 people work there 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to feed the vast metropolitan area and its 22 million inhabitants.
As the country's second-largest financial center behind the Mexico City stock exchange, Abastos also attracts great interest. Not least that of the country's most violent gang, the Jalisco cartel, said to have made its way right up to the top management.
