Market Tour

Join Erin for an in-depth exploration of indigenous fruits, vegetables and other plants of Yucatan, starting with the pre-Hispanic diet and moving through history as traditional plant foods and preparations continue to shape the local diet. Your tour begins in colorful Parque San Juan and weaves through the central Lucas de Galvez market with plenty of stops for food and drink and chats with vendors along the way. This tour focuses on the local plant foods, therefore it happens to be 100% vegan.
