Organic markets to be reactivated in Mazatlan


They promote healthy and sustainable regional products at the Center for Agricultural and Environmental Education.

Mazatlán, Sinaloa (October 1st, 2020).- As of October 18, the Center for Agricultural and Environmental Education plans to reactivate the organic markets that it has carried out for three years in the open air, in CEAA spaces, and that due to the Covid – 19 pandemic were suspended, reported the president of this body, David Ocampo Peraza.

He stated that the idea is to carry out these events every 15 days, with the aim of educating the population to eat healthy and sustainable food, as well as promoting the consumption of regional products that grow naturally in the Sinaloan fields and countryside.

He reported that in the first event the participation of around 10 to 12 local producers is expected and around 10 people who prepare food with natural products will also be invited; it is estimated that the influx of visitors will be 50 to 60 people.

He also announced that on November 1 the second meeting on healthy eating will be held, with the main theme: “Strengthening the immune system with healthy foods”, an event in which speakers and nutritionists will make free medical diagnoses.

In addition to nutritionists, producers and natural food restaurants, the CEAA will invite specialized personnel from the Federal Commission for the Protection of Sanitary Risks and the health sector to speak about the advances, measures and care required from companies regarding the preparation of food, in times of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Nutritionists are going to be invited, we are going to ask them to be there and offer their service, that people get a free diagnosis in relation to their nutritional situation, they are even thinking on what obese people or those with diabetes or any chronic degenerative disease would have to consume ”, he pointed out.

Both events will be held outdoors in spaces of the Center for Agricultural and Environmental Education, which is located in front of what used to be the City Forest.
