Oaxaca Market Project

Fiesta de 35 Aniversario

By Ron Mader

Oaxaca City’s Sánchez Pascuas Market specializes in fresh vegetables and fruits, local cheeses, good food and crafts. In 2007 this traditional market celebrated its 35th anniversary and the party was sublime!

Sánchez Pascuas is documented in the newly developing Oaxaca Market Project, an initiative of Planeta.com and friends in Oaxaca. We ask visitors to print photos (seen here archived on Flickr) and give them to the venders. This puts a new spin on the traditional “take only photographs” mantra by giving the photos back and raising awareness and increasing purchases of traditional crafts and local food.
