Great Organic Market - Not only Vegetables
Posted on 03 / 08 / 2011
I've been there in March 2011.
The market is roughly about 100 meters long, with maybe 25 different booths. It is located right next to the Reducto Park, which also has a small family-friendly garden, good for a stroll if weather is nice.
A broad range of organic vegetables and fruits are sold here. Prices may be a little higher than buying in the market or in the supermarket, but all products are said to be organic.
Besides vegetables, you can also find bread, teas, coffee, granolas, cheese, jams, clothes and even souvenirs. People from the restaurant called "Almazen" have a booth with vegetarian food for taking out. There are a couple of containers for bringing paper and plastics so that they are recycled.
Although some things maybe a little bit overpriced; all-in-all, the atmosphere is very pleasant and it is worth a visit if you are in Lima. Only Saturdays until 14.00.
organic food, some things you can only find here, good variety
