Slow Food Market

Slow Food Yucatan has put together a group of organic food producers and they had their debut Friday market yesterday. It was quite crowded, and some vendors ran out of products. There was great stuff available for sale – chimichurri, peanut butter, bread and muffins, fruits and vegetables, granola, etc. The market, located in front of Monique Duval’s bakery, will operate regularly on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (but it’s best to go early).

The market is the brainchild of an organization comprised of our best foodies. They screen applications from producers who would like to participate. If you know anyone who would like to sell their products at the market, they can contact David Sterling or Mario Canul.

Contact David Sterling, or Mario Canul, You can call Mario at 999.928.1116 between  9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday – Friday.

I bought home-made granola from a woman named Susan. It made me cry, it was so good. The chimichurri lady ran out, so I’ll buy it next week. She had other great sauces too. Sonia Kralovic was selling her fabulous chutneys, jams and rye bread and Los Dos was serving samples of their peanut butter and honey. And the “English muffins,” from Monique’s bakery, are so very wonderful, full of seeds. They’re only ten pesos apiece and this week they were made much too large by mistake, but she still charged ten pesos.

The market is held in front of Monique’s very excellent bakery in Chuburna, not far from Costco. The address is Calle 31 No. 70, por 12 y 14, Colonia Chuburna de Hidalgo. Phone: 999.195.6413.

See you there!
