Traditional Sunday Market : Every Sunday

In Brief: For food lovers. Traditional market and a home cooking class!


Oaxaca comes together at the market! Ancient ritual of exchange, people watching extraordinaire, sights, sounds, smells, tastes and an overload of everything! For centuries Sundays in Tlacolula have meant all of this and today we’ll become a part of this delicious, living history as we immerse ourselves in Sunday Market. And while here we'll pick of some necessary ingredients, because after market we are off to Kitchen. In this case a traditional Zapotec kitchen where we'll be learning how to turn those ingredients into our lunch in a hands-on cooking class. Then we visit a home based industry in a little village where the iconic aprons used by the women of the Oaxacan valleys are made. Colorful, fun, and a must when making Oaxaca cuisine. Today, market, kitchen, apron, we immerse ourselves into a Oaxaca well off the beaten path, and well worth the time!
