Inside of La Marqueta you mostly find food but in the far corner there are two small barber shops and a beauty salon. There is something beautiful about barber shops, especially these small independent spaces that have held on over the years. Daniel Reyes, who is in the first 2 photographs, has been in his space for 27 years and in the neighborhood for over 45.

(I just heard that they won a new 5 year lease so La Marqueta will live on!)
