If you’ve ever had the pleasure of shopping at a “farmer’s market”, you will understand how exciting the prospect of a locally grown food market really is.
Well this Saturday July 5th we can look forward to exactly that – right here in nearby Boca de Chavon.
The “Mercado de la Tierra” will be open from 10am to 3pm on Saturday with a bountiful selection of fruits and vegetables grown right here in the La Romana-Bayahibe area. All products are fresh and 100% ecologically grown.
On sale you’ll find fresh herbs, cucumber, broccoli, radishes, carrots, peppers, papaya, melon, cabbage, and zucchini, as well as much more such as tropical root vegetables like the yautia.
The “Mercado de la Tierra” is part of the “Slow Food” movement, a grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast food and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.
This is your chance to support the local economy, while also getting your hands on good, fresh, clean fruits and vegetables.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Mercado de la Tierra
When: Saturday July 5th, 10am – 3pm
Where: Leave the Autopista del Coral at the Boca de Chavon (km13) exit, and the market should be there – we will be going for our first time this Saturday, so next time we should have better directions.
