Playa del Carmen attracts visitors from all over the world, in part because of our wonderful year-round climate. This climate makes it easy for organic farmers in the area to grow delicious fruits and vegetables when they’re out of season elsewhere. If you’re ready to sample the freshest local produce from Playa del Carmen, be sure to visit the Coco Beach Organic Market during your next trip to Playa Palms.
Experience the Exotic Range of Quintana Roo’s Local Flavors at an Organic Market
The Coco Beach Organic Market takes place each Friday morning from 9 to 11 am in front of the Les Alizes Condominiums. The market began in 2013 and has become very popular since then. The variety of vendors and the superior quality of their goods have made the Coco Beach Organic Market a place that both locals and tourists can gather, mingle, and socialize while doing some of their grocery shopping for the week.
Visiting this market is also a great way to celebrate the diverse fruits and vegetables common to the area, many of which have never been seen before by travelers from other countries. Some of these exotic delicacies include:
- Star fruit
- Golden passion fruit
- Piña Anona
The market also provides delicious organic baked goods, granola, homemade Mexican foods — like empandas and tamales — as well as organic eggs, fresh herbs, and starter plants. You can even find gluten-free pizzas and other healthy snacks. Even if you don’t feel like cooking a meal in your hotel room’s kitchenette, the market is worth a visit. You’ll find your beach bag stocked with delicious tidbits to enjoy throughout the day.
