Organic Market in Miraflores

Every Saturday morning Parque Reducto in Miraflores becomes a Bioferia Ecologica (an organic market) where small farmers sell their products to locals and foreigners.

In this one block long market you can get organic breads, jams, honey, coffee, cheese, fruits and vegetables, as well as tamales, humitas, papas rellenas (stuffed potatoes), empanadas, and a great variety of dishes prepared with organic products.

There are also some lectures and presentations on ecology and organic food production.

The surrounding area is quiet and the park is nice for a walk.

From 8:00am to 2:30pm
Parque Reducto No. 2, Av. Benavides and Paseo de la Republica, Miraflores (in front of Colegio Carmelitas)
8:00am. a 2:30pm.
