A little History about El Burrito Mercado
This is Mexico in Saint Paul! Authentic deli, groceries, and beautiful arts and crafts lovingly selected directly from artisans in Mexico.
Tomas and Maria Silva are the original owners, from humble beginnings in Aguascalientes, Mexico, in 1979, with minimal education, mostly street smarts, and plenty of vision and faith, they took over a small 800sq ft market and converted it to El Burrito Market, dba El Burrito Mercado. Offering only dry Mexican groceries and tortillas, one cash register, and a van in which Tomas would use on weekends to go to Chicago to load up on merchandise.
