‘Slow Food’ fair to offer Costa Rican specialties

September 26, 2017

A food fair, free and open to the public, will celebrate Costa Rican examples of the “Slow Food” movement this Friday in western San José.

The Mercado de la Tierra, or Earth Market, will feature foods from Turrialba cheese and pejibayes to traditional dishes and indigenous artwork.

“We’re promoting high-quality projects that are developed with clean technologies that minimize the damage to human, animal and environmental health, said Patricia Sánchez, coordinator of the Agromática program within the National High Technology Center (CeNAT), in a news release.

The Slow Food movement began in Italy in 1980 to defend regional culinary traditions, proper nutrition and the pleasures of a mindful, slower life. Today it has inspired projects in more than 160 countries, including Costa Rica, the statement said.

This Friday’s fair will run from 9 am – 4 pm at the Franklin Chang Building in Pavas, 1.3 km north of the U.S. Embassy. For more information, call 2519-5835.
