Tianguis Orgánico Bosque de Agua was my first encounter with organic food. This is where I learned what it is all about and how to make my own sourdough.
I have had the opportunity to visit the producers’ farms, and most importantly, we have become friends.
The producers are great, they are eager not to sell but to share their knowledge with you and create a real community.
Every Sunday, the Tianguis offers workshops for free or at a very low price. These workshops are given by the producers themselves.
You will be surprised that the products are of the highest quality and prices are lower than in any supermarket.
Breakfast is served in their small restaurant and the food is prepared with the same ingredients sold in the market. All you need is to be patient.
My favorites are Denisse’s strawberries and mushrooms — she is French so if you are visiting from France she would love to chat with you; Ruth’s fermented coconut yogurt and hummus; Victor’s fermented lemons and honey; Ost Sourdough and pancake mix; Bethany’s fresh cheese, Marco’s veggies, Pao’s cacao nibs, real corn tortillas and butter-like avocado.
