Meet local producers from near the city and from around the country. In the Tianguis Foro Alternativo Ecológico, you will find hand-picked produce straight form their farmers.
This is one of the organic markets with some of the best fruit selection; every time I visit the market, I find different fruits and some great surprises. If you are lucky, sometimes you can find traditional food straight form Oaxaca.
Here you will also find the best goat cheese and cajeta, milk candy, ask for Georgina and don’t forget to buy some bread to go with it, there’s plenty to choose from.
Prices are super fair here, mostly because thoes who sell the products are the ones that grow them or prepare them.
If you are a fan of kombucha you should try the one sold here — it comes in different flavors.
This market is focused in supporting really small producers that can’t afford to pay for an organic certificate but their processes are clean. They are known as agroecological producers.
