Here at Playa Palms Beach Hotel, each of our rooms are equipped with a kitchenette, which means you can stock up on some of the area’s local, seasonal produce and homemade treats. If this idea appeals to you, we recommend taking a walk to the Coco Beach Eco Market.
Stroll Around Local Playa del Carmen Markets for Eco-Friendly Food and Goods
The Coco Beach Eco Market is just a 20-minute walk from Playa Palms. You can stroll the streets or walk along the beach, our concierge will be happy to provide the map and instructions. The outdoor eco market takes place each Friday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Founded just over a year ago by a group of enthusiastic citizens, ex-pats, and local vendors, Coco Beach Eco Market was created to promote the sale of local, sustainable, and organic goods and to enrich our community.
Upon arriving, your senses will be greeted by colorful sights, delectable smells – and there’s often live music as well. You’ll see fresh seasonal produce from local farms and growers in the area. Homemade salsa and guacamole are available, as are bottles of juice made that morning from seasonal veggies and fruits. Baked goods abound, including pastries, breads and empanadas. You’ll also find artisan cheeses, fresh coffee, and other local treats.
Grab a cup of coffee, stroll the booths, and start conversations with some of Playa del Carmen’s most innovative community members. Nibble while you’re there, but pack your bags full of foods, snacks, and treats that will keep you fueled for beach days, adventures, or those luxurious afternoons spent in your hotel room doing nothing but relaxing.
Feel free to contact Playa Palms Hotel to book your stay within easy walking distance from Coco Beach and other local Playa del Carmen Markets.
