The pilot test will be in the first days of February; on the site, the producers will be able to sell organic merchandise directly.
The Tulum City Council and the Sustainable Tulum Network are promoting the creation of the "Mayan Market" so that local producers can sell their merchandise directly to companies and the general public, thus strengthening the economy of the Mayan Zone, said Eva. Rocha Gedet
In that sense, she said that tentatively in the first days of February will install the tianguis of the "Mayan Market" as an initial test in the dome of the Expo or Community Development Center.
The central idea is that the producers of the Mayan Zone can sell directly honey, handicrafts, eggs, chickens, pumpkins, onion tomatoes, seasonal fruits, citrus, herbs, and medicinal herbs, among other 140 products they grow, said Carlos Meade de la Cueva, a member of the Sustainable Tulum Network that brings together several Non-Governmental Organizations.
In turn, Rocha Gedet indicated that initially, about 50 producers will participate and that the spirit that animates this initiative was born of the Non-Governmental Organizations to strengthen the producers of the Mayan Zone linking them to the market of the municipal seat and the tourist area.
She stressed that it is planned to provide producers who will participate in training and advice so they can improve and increase their production with commercial criteria.
Meade de la Cueva said that it is intended to supply the general population with healthy, fresh, and organic products, which over time will seek to certify them as organic products.
