Are you a fan of fresh, locally grown food? Do you prefer free-range organic eggs? Do you love homemade bread, sauces, dips, pickles, pastries, and more? If so, then the Slow Food Market is for you. It takes place in the parking lot and on the sidewalks of Centro Comercial Colón. It’s also a chance to meet new people and chat with your friends.

Slow Food is an international movement, based in Italy, which promotes local production of food, preservation of regional culinary traditions, and healthy eating. Slow Food Yucatán is an official chapter of the international Slow Food movement.

Slow Food is a nonprofit, eco-gastronomic, member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions, and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat – where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Slow Food brings together pleasure and responsibility. The Yucatán chapter celebrates our diversity of local food production and rich culinary heritage, and aims to preserve, promote and enjoy it for generations to come. Slow Food Yucatán promotes the healthy growing and eating of locally farmed and produced food, and preserves the region’s unique culinary history. This in turn provides economic benefits to the local farmers, and healthy and delicious benefits to everyone who eats in Yucatán.

In the same plaza, you can have a leisurely Saturday breakfast at the traditional Platos Rotos Mexican restaurant, or drop in for a coffee at Midtown Café or Café Orgánico. 

The Slow Food Market is held on Saturdays from 9 am – 1 pm, at Centro Comercial Colón, on Calle 33-D at Avenida Reforma, between Colón and Cupules.
