If Yucatán has one thing, it’s authentic food and products, unique ingredients and cooking techniques that make for an amazing gastronomy, and local businesses with fantastic people. Many of these establishments are so fabulous precisely because they’re local. We also miss heading down to the market and picking out our fruits and veggies, cuts of meat, and spices, or going to the salon to get our hair done, and to our favorite coffee shop in Centro. These shops are still hard at work! We know you want to help out local business (and get quality products and services!), so we did a little digging to find some that are offering delivery or pick up service. Stay home and help out your neighbors.
Market Local Finds
Slow Food Market is open for orders Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 10 am to 6 pm via phone or WhatsApp. They’ll send their catalog your way with all the products you can choose from. Cheese? Honey? Tamales? Slow Food has it all. They deliver on Saturdays between 10 am and 3 pm. If you would like groceries from the Mercado Lucas de Gálvez, there’s a Facebook page designed with this in mind! Look up “Personal Shoppers del Mercado,” and find out how to get fresh products to your doorstep.
